The Downtown Boxing Gym Youth Program encourages kids 8-18 to engage in a demanding physical, academic and social program. Nearly 95% of the children come from families that are living below the poverty line. The kids are attracted by the desire to learn to box – with the help of the Youth Program, they stay active at the gym, in their schools and in their community. The emphasis of “Books Before Boxing” has generated a 100% high school graduation rate of program participants.
Project scope: Clean and prep interior gym walls and interior office spaces. Sweep and clean floor surfaces. Time-permitting, prime concrete masonry unit walls.

A dumpster will be on site for debris. Time-permitting, office walls will be primed. Accordingly, please bring paint brushes.
