The YMCA uses boxing as a way to minister to youth in our community through character development, mentoring, and Bible study through programs like our YMCA Boxing Team and partnership with the juvenile court system. We provide boxing programs to help kids re-focus and stay in school. Boxing gets kids off the streets and actually gives them something healthy, safe, and productive to do, and it allows youth to decompress and channel their energy, aggression, and restlessness.
