Downtown Boxing Gym Youth Program (DBG) opened its doors in 2007. Since that time, Khali Sweeney and his team have provided a free, after-school, safe haven for Detroit youth between the ages of 8 and 18. The philosophy behind our motto “Books before Boxing” has encouraged 268 high school graduates and continues to help maintain our 100% high school graduation rate. DBG’s mission is to empower Detroit youth to become positive and productive members of society, through education, athletics, mentoring, and intervention.
