Downtown Boxing Gym Youth Program

How does the sport of boxing make such a positive impact on urban youth?  All one has to do is look to Detroit’s Downtown Boxing Gym (DBG) Youth Program to find out.  Having served over 100 inner-city students, DBG’s youth program is a non-profit that develops good citizenship in urban youth through a demanding boxing program in addition to strong academic support and a connection to the community through voluntary service.  Through various events, fundraising programs, and generous donations,  DBG supports its programs while also breeding some of the nation’s top amateur boxers, developing young role models in the process.
