The Gentlemen’s Course:
Christopher King, grandson of the legendary Blues and Rock n' Roll icon, B.B. King, believes, ”If we change our youth, they will change our future.” With that in mind and being fueled by a passion to help, inspire and motivate the nation's youth, King founded "The Gentlemen's Course," a non-profit organization that focuses on providing life skills to youth and young adults by teaching them social and professional etiquette in real-life situations with proper speech, attire, and manners. "The Gentlemen's Course" introduces and teaches vital information about human rights as well as human trafficking to arm them with the knowledge to ensure personal and professional success when reaching out and moving forward in Life.
