Volunteer at the
Downtown Boxing Gym

Make an impact - support our students and community by volunteering today!

TUTORS – All of our students receive daily academic support, annual assessment, and assistance with their homework, studying, and project work. We are looking for volunteers to tutor our students in all subjects. Tutors are needed Monday through Friday, from 4:00pm until 7:00pm. We ask that you commit to at least one day per week. Consistency and stability are very important for our students’ success. All tutors must pass a background check in order to work with our students.

DRIVERS – Our students receive free transportation to and from the gym each day. We need volunteer drivers Monday through Friday from 2:30pm until 5:00pm, and from 7:00pm-8:30pm. All drivers must have a chauffeur's license, pass a background check, and provide a copy of their driving record.

MENTORS – In order to provide our students with opportunities to explore different career paths, DBG is looking for volunteers to share their career stories with our kids. Perhaps you’re able to provide one-on-one sessions to discuss educational paths, potential internships, or training. Maybe there is an opportunity for the student to shadow you at your place of employment. All volunteers must pass a background check in order to work with our students.

YOUNG PROFESSIONALS – Downtown Boxing Gym is building a core of young professional volunteers to assist with boxing event planning and execution, fundraisers, newsletters and mailings, and field trip events for the students.
