Downtown Boxing Gym Youth Program (DBG) develops good citizenship in urban youth through strong academic support, a demanding boxing program, and a connection to the community through voluntary service. Downtown Boxing Gym Youth Program currently serves 65 students between the ages of 7 and18, with 320 more 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.
