Mission Statement
“To use the spirit of amateur boxing as a vehicle to teach young men and women the value of work ethic, sportsmanship, and the relationship between setting a goal and obtaining it through self-discipline and healthy exercise.”
Background Statement
The Community Boxing & Fitness Center started in 2005 in Kansas City, Kansas. The program was the result of a vision by three concerned Christian men who regularly watched youth and young adults “hanging out on the streets” after school and on the weekends. After brainstorming how they could use their personal talents and abilities these concerns for the community, Community Boxing Fitness Youth Center was organized. Since April 2008 Community Boxing Youth Center has been a 501c(3) not for profit organization.
Impact Statement
Since beginning services in 2005 and maintaining operations in our current location and operating 3 programs of Youth and Community Fitness Programs – Commit to Be FIT, Computer Training and After School Tutoring Services. Perhaps the greatest accomplishment lies in the testimonials of youth who have used the programs and have excelled in furthering their academic pursuits and have remained positive in the community.
Needs Statement The singular greatest need of this program is to complete a structural upgrade of the building. The next series of needs would be an increase in the amount of technology to fuse with the computer tutoring programs, an increase in funding to expand capacity by an additional 50 youth.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Chair Statement It has been a labor of love to found this center here in Kansas City, Kansas in a neighborhood where I grew up, a neighborhood where I still reside and a City in which I have a business in and am blessed to lead a church in. There were and are many opportunities and facilities in other parts of the City to begin a center, however the need is so great in this area for positive role models, mentors, and opportunities, I really could not in good conscience establish this opportunity anywhere else. As a former boxer, I know the discipline and direction that boxing, coaching, mentorship can assist in finding direction and lead to success in the lives of young people. Community Boxing & Fitness Center uses routines centered around life in the ring, the skills, coaching and mentorship allow for a total win in the community where everyone can be a champion.
The fitness program is a balance of activity and healthy nutrition and lifestyle that consists of weightlifting, coordination exercises, running and learning of what constitutes a nutritious diet and lifestyle.

Short-Term Success The changes of behavior in the youth has been quite remarkable to witness as the youth and their parents have been able to verify goal development, planning and the ability to control and discuss their emotions as it relates to self-control and discipline.
Long-Term Success
The ultimate program goal is to gain peak physical fitness along with emotional and psychological awareness to understand the linkage between creating and working towards goals and become a positive, disciplined and balanced individual.
Program Success Monitored By Community Boxing and Fitness is successful as each year the amount of individuals who participate in the programming is on the rise to now there are a consistent 100 individuals who utilize the facilities and programming.
Examples of Program Success
There are many stories of individual youth who have been able to find discipline in the ring of life after finding the balance they always had within, but if I was to judge one that is truly a beacon of a story of hope that all people can find a common bond and ground for improvement it would be the story of Mr. Ross. Mr. Ross came from Liberty, Missouri to participate in our program and being one of the few Caucasian kids in the program was able to work on self-esteem, overcome his anger issues and become a college student in the Bloch Business School.
