Yesterday we paid a visit to Downtown Boxing Gym in Detroit after hearing about a virtual drum off between one of our students and one of their kids. Click here to view the video that made some waves on social media. What a cool place! The motto of the program is “books before boxing” as they have kids work with tutors to complete their school work before the boxing begins. The boxing angle is used to get kids interested, but the goal is to get kids off of the street, have them graduate high school and go to college. So far their graduation rate is 100% and over 90% of the kids have gone on to college. There are currently 147 kids sponsored into the program via corporate and private donors with a waiting list of over 700 kids. It’s quite a remarkable space with great energy. For more on the good that they’re up to click here.

So now we’re brainstorming on how we can partner with them to provide music lessons for the kids. Any ideas? Wanna help? Email Donny at dklemmer@axismusic.com if you’d like to be involved.
