2018
"The B4 Program is the most impressive grass-roots youth
development program that I have been associated with during my
years at Marshall University. Enormous credit must be extended to
the hard work and commitment of Team KRL who do what others only speak of doing. Our participating youth will surely prosper in life,
directly as a result of these experiences and this is a great thing!"
Maurice R. Cooley, associate VP for intercultural affairs, Marshall University
"I am thrilled for the city of Huntington and surrounding communities. Be Strong, Be Positive, Be Ready, Believe is a positive force for youth! This program provides the necessary skills and tools to prepare our youth to thrive and achieve success in life."
Dr. Shari Clarke, vice provost for Diversity and Inclusion, Ohio University
"Research is clear concerning the presence of a caring adult in
the life of a child as a critical element for school completion and
other quality of life choices. The B4 program helps our students to
develop a vision for the future that includes high school completion
and beyond. The B4 summer program is making a difference
for many of our students who need an advocate."
William Smith, retired superintendent, Cabell County Public Schools
"It's great that young men from our community have returned to give back. Team KRL B4 has shown our young people they too can be successful even coming from Huntington. I'm proud of these men."
Rev. Reginald Hill
"Team KRL and the Marshall Recreation Center have successfully completed four B4 programs comprised of team building activities based on leadership, critical thinking and problem-solving, and
effective communication. I see the relationship only growing even stronger because both organizations value healthy lifestyles and
want to change the lives of those in the Tri-State, for the better."
Chad Steen, assistant director, Marshall Recreation Center
"TEAM KRL's B4 youth program is outstanding!  Investing in our
future is a privilege and a great opportunity.  TEAM KRL inspired
the youth as they led with passion. They offer great resources and support illustrating how to turn your dream into a reality. "
Marcia Harris, YOUnique Life Skills, Time Out for Me, Inc., Portsmouth,Ohio
"In an era where our youth are aching for wholesome examples of citizenship, I thank the Lord for TEAM KRL.  Their selfless effort to foster an attitude of excellence among our young people is highly commendable. The staging of B4 is tactfully set on the beautiful
campus of Marshall University where students not only have the opportunity to trek the grounds of a quality institution of higher education, but also have a chance to personally interact with real-life examples of success in spite of excuses and obstacles. These gentlemen are true heroes. I pray the Lord continues to prosper
your efforts as compassion for His children flows through you."
Bishop Samuel R. Moore, Full Gospel Assembly
"B4 is an excellent program for teenage youth combing character strengthening, with an informative approach from individuals who've excelled in their fields of practice from the streets of Huntington, to the halls of Marshall University, and into the world to become great contributors & representatives of this society! If you have or know young people who you want to place in an environment of positivity conducive for growth & greatness... B4 Camp is THAT place."
