The Fox84 Initiative For Boys was formed by four Marion High School graduates who saw a need to give back to the community that raised them by offering mentoring programs to at-risk youths. It is our goal to give young men in Marion, South Carolina, an opportunity for a brighter future.

The Fox84 Initiative for Boys

The Fox84 Initiative For Boys is a nonprofit that understands the value of a good role model and positive affirmation in a young boy’s life.
