"My son was headed down a path of destruction, I couldn't do too much with him -- the streets had a very strong hold. Thanks to Lost Boyz mentorship, Corey quit the gang, graduated 8th grade with a B average, and got accepted with a baseball scholarship to high school."

"I am so honored to be part of the Lost Boyz Inc. family. This organization has taught me no matter what your background is, we are all the same. Coach Lavonte is a great mentor and understanding friend. Ever since I have been part of Lost Boyz, it has been a wonderful adventure and I look forward to coaching many years to come with this organization. Thank you again for having me and my daughter a part of your organization."
