About the organisation

Downtown Boxing Gym Youth Program

Downtown Boxing Gym Youth Program is a free after-school academic program founded in 2007 by Khali Sweeney. We serve kids 7 years old to 19 years old. Currently, 125 students are enrolled, with 700 on a waiting list. Since DBGYP's inception, 100 percent of our students have graduated from high school (267), and 98 percent of those students continued on to college. #BooksBeforeBoxing

This is a social impact experience where 100% of what you pay for this experience goes to Downtown Boxing Gym Youth Program.

Where you'll be

DBGYP is an experience in itself. Our facility offers state-of-the-art training equipment, a library, a music room filled with instruments, a computer lab, and a recently redesigned kitchen. Our vans pick up and drop off students weekdays from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
