Downtown Boxing Gym Youth Program – Seeking volunteers

A boxing gym located by Eastern Market and it is a completely free after school program for kids in the surrounding Detroit community. Yes, this is a boxing gym, but only a select amount participate in the boxing, but all students understand academics are first priority. Currently there are 130 students who attend and a wait list of over 750. The students range from 8 years old to 18 years old and transportation, enrichment, tutoring, and meals are provided by donors. We are looking for volunteers (college level and beyond) to help our students. The students come in around 3:30p -4:00pm and everyone leaves by 7:00 pm.
