Currently we have over 100 active participants.
Over the past several years we have served more than 1000 young men and women in our community.
At The Good Fight (TGF), we use boxing and a team environment to teach courage, character, and accountability to young men and women ages 14-28 and bridge social, economic, and cultural boundaries. Our program is focused on teaching the virtues of sports—virtues such as self-reliance, courage, commitment, sacrifice, and accountability—and not simply developing competitive athletes. The program is open to all interested young people regardless of their potential or interest in becoming competitive. TGF provides mentorship, education, personal, and career development opportunities and guidance as well.
The Good Fight also offers programs to help adult coaches and volunteers learn effective teaching, mentoring, and leadership skills. These are not stand-alone programs, but immersive, coaching “residencies” that build the capacity of coaches and volunteers to serve as coaches and leaders independently in their own communities.
The Good Fight has established close ties to local business owners who can provide fighters with part-time and full-time entry level job opportunities. Fighters have been hired by:
Metropolitan Moving & Storage - www.dcmetropolitanmoving.com
Champions boxing & Fitness - www.championboxingfitness.com
The Good Fight has established relationships with several companies in the region which can offer apprenticeships to qualifying athletes. Most of these opportunities are in trade industries where highly skilled labor is in demand. These opportunities are for those fighters who want to learn lifelong career skills in such areas as HVAC, plumbing, electrical, or auto mechanics. Through on the job training and study, fighters can learn a valuable trade.
Finally, The Good Fight supports programs in the community that shares our love for boxing and our vision for creating leaders.
