Virgin Island Kings (VI Kings), idea was founded in 2018 by Warren Bongo Natty Mitchell, but in 2022 together with Curtis Augustin and Glen Fraser, the organization was created. The VI Kings'  mission is to improve the quality of life for people in the US Virgin Islands community and in the Atlanta Virgin Islands community. 

VI Kings is now led by Curtis Augustin who saw an opportunity for young men to give back, he together with Warren, Glen, other men, and Project Restore, got together to do household jobs for young single mothers in their community, but they didn't stop there. The VI Kings have donated laptops to schools and young mothers, worked with the Virgin Islands Association of Georgia to honor seniors and hosted Q & A sessions between men and women, in conjunction with Sisters Loving Sisters (SLS), founded by Naeemah Charles to foster a better understanding of genders. Ongoing activities include workshops for yound males, including, teaching them about tying a tie, dressing for success, changing a car tire, basic plumbing, financial management and learning the value of nature.

The leadership of this organization was able to secure sponsorship for some students in the Virgin Islands to host a Woman King movie viewing in 2022bun St. Crox, and in 2024 they hope to do the same for the upcoming Bob Marley Croix, in St. Thomas. This group with its membership of 21 young men looks forward to growing, mentoring male youths and serving the community.

 

Whine Walk Run 5K commends the vision of the VI Kings and is proud of the work they have done to guide young men of Caribbean descent.
