Downtown Youth Boxing Gym

6445 E Vernor Hwy, Detroit, MI 48207, USA
6445 East Vernor Highway Detroit Michigan 48207 US

Since 2007, the kind-hearted team behind this organization has provided kids between the of ages 7-18 with a powerful bonding experience that instills pride and the importance of discipline. “Books before boxing” is a key component of the foundation’s philosophy, which is why they have partnered with Teach for America.

The program survives thanks to donations from the community and business world. Financial contributions are accepted in an effort to reduce the amount of kids on their waiting list.

TUTORS – Tutors are needed Monday through Friday, from 4-7pm, with a commitment of at least one day per week.

DRIVERS – Students receive free transportation to and from the gym each day, and volunteer drivers are needed Monday through Friday from 2:30pm- 4, and from 7-8:30pm.

MENTORS – In order to provide students with opportunities to explore different career paths, DYBG is looking for volunteers to share their career stories with the kids. Perhaps you’re able to provide one-on-one sessions to discuss educational paths, potential internships, or training. Your commitment varies and is flexible.

YOUNG PROFESSIONALS – Downtown Youth 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. Again, your commitment varies and is flexible.
