THE STORY:

DOWNTOWN BOXING GYM YOUTH PROGRAM wrote -

Help us save lives! Our children DESERVE to be safe, off the streets, out of jail or the morgue. These kids are more than capable of achieving the highest levels of success. Help us get them there by supporting Downtown Boxing Gym!

$25 - provides school supplies for our students, including pencils, notebooks, folders, scissors, glue, colored pencils, crayons, etc.

$50 - provides athletic equipment, including jump ropes, boxing gloves, head gear, cups and mouth guards

$100 - purchases academic resources, including flash cards, SAT/ACT preparation materials, and educational games

$250 - provides supplemental educational activities, including gardening, soccer and paddle boarding, art and music classes, horse camp, and STEM related programming

$500 - provides academic enrichment programming through engineering, computer programming and technology workshops

$1,800 - provides an annual sponsorship for one of our students; Monday through Friday, all year long

The ultimate goal of our program is for our students to graduate from high school with expanded expectations for their own futures. While graduation rates are hovering around 80 percent for Detroit schools, the truth is that they are not reaching competitive levels of academic success and their ACT/SAT capabilities are suffering. Through exposure to myriad enrichment opportunities, we are able to provide our students with a pathway to forming a love for learning. We expose them to careers, colleges, trades, arts and healthy lifestyles that propel them to become positive and productive members of society.
