“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 501©(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.
