In a city famous for grit, hard work, and determination, a group of students is learning anything is possible. The Downtown Boxing Gym Youth Program is quietly changing lives and helping Detroit Students reach their full potential.
In December 2016, 8th grade students from Hillel Day School paid a visit to the Downtown Boxing Gym to learn more about our program which combines strong academic support with a rigorous boxing regimen. Their students and our students took part in a holiday gift exchange.
Team Detroit helps tell our story through the eyes of students, staff, and the volunteers who all help make a difference in the lives our our kids. Since 2007, 100% of our students have graduated high school.
The Downtown Boxing Gym Youth Program encourages the youth of Detroit to engage in a demanding physical, academic and social program in which trainers, tutors, counselors and social workers provide daily services directly at the Downtown Boxing Gym. The kids are attracted by the desire to learn to box – with the help of the Youth Program, they will stay active at the gym, in their schools and in their community.
