Boxing Out Negativity is an anti-violence program on Chicago’s West side.  Our boxing program is offered at no cost to youth or their families, prioritizing those ages 8+ who are at the greatest risk for violence; we engage our team as family, with physical training, team meals, recreation, and civic engagement. Our violence intervention team engages in conflict mediation and offers forms of engagement for those who have been street- and justice-involved. We also host a summer event series to build community within North Lawndale and beyond.  Boxing Out Negativity is more than a boxing program – it’s a way of life.
