Chicago Youth Boxing Club (CYBC) is focused on giving youth a constructive, healthy alternative to gang and drug activity while also building the life skills necessary to pursue a positive future for themselves and their communities.

CYBC intends to utilize award funds to expand its student academic support center, particularly its college and career readiness program. This program is focused on college visits, application assistance, and resume development. In addition, it hopes to use funds to further develop the parent club to encourage greater parental involvement.
