Through education, athletics, mentorship and intervention, Downtown Boxing Gym empowers Detroit youth to be positive and productive members of society.

How We Serve

Downtown Boxing Gym Youth Program currently serves 125 students between the ages of 7 and 18, with more than 600 on our waiting list. And the number continues to grow. More than 75% of the enrolled students live within a 3-mile radius of the gym, many of whom are residents of the nearby public housing units. Their families benefit by witnessing and participating in our hands-on coaching methodology.

DBG is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Every dollar contributed helps to shrink our waiting list and allows us to serve more students to serve more students.
