CYBC's Story

Chicago Youth Boxing Club is a nonprofit sports-based youth development program operating in Chicago’s South Lawndale community (also known as Little Village). CYBC began in 2006 and is one of only a few independent boxing programs in Chicago dedicated to comprehensive youth engagement that focuses on holistic approaches to youth wellness. Our mission is to give youth a constructive, healthy alternative to gang violence and drug activity through the sport of boxing while they build the life skills and determination necessary to seek a positive future for themselves and their community. CYBC’s goal is to provide children with a platform for expanding upon the discipline and goal-orientation necessary to succeed in their academic, extracurricular and lifelong pursuits. In addition, CYBC seeks to improve youth health by increasing knowledge of fitness and nutrition.
