Norwayne Boxing Gym Youth Development Program

Posted By: Jan Mnich (August 5, 2020)
NBG was founded in 2015 to help at-risk children in Westland's Norwayne neighborhood. Many children within this development, ages 8-18, come from homes where children are raising children, single parent homes, homes with parents afflicted with addiction, where school success isn't a priority, nor a positive environment for life success and street living isn't uncommon.

NBG has grown into an all-inclusive program helping children throughout Detroit and surrounding communities. The focus has become Four Corners of Achievement: Academics, Athletics, Community, Leadership. Tutors encourage academic success from middle school to launching students into a career beyond the ring. Athletic training and team bonding encourage kids to Fight for Their Dreams, knowing people believe in you and believing in yourself. Community encourages giving back and paying forward. Leadership develops through confidence, personal success and respecting yourself.

That's NBG, please help the program continue providing for kids!
