Unlike any other program in the country, the International Boxing Club (IBC) provides positive alternatives that go beyond the boxing ring. Since 1998, we have provided afterschool programs that focus on academic, vocational, and service-learning activities for more than 4,000 young people in the greater Toledo area.

For at-risk youth, the IBC is a safe haven ? a place where caring adults will listen and help them get through any crisis. The IBC gives these children and young adults hope. Our programs are designed to:

- Reduce drug use among youth
- Decrease juvenile delinquency
- Reduce gang involvement among youth
- Revitalize high crime neighborhoods
- Provide summer and afterschool meals to children in need
- Expand access for children to the summer and afterschool reading program for literacy enrichment

Our family at the IBC consists of caring mentors, coaches, trainers, and educators. We fulfill our mission by promoting exercise, academic achievement, vocational skill-building, and a service-learning ethic. IBC offers four integrated afterschool programs: (1) Physical Fitness, (2) The Learning Center, (3) Vocational Center, and (4) Gloves with Love Service-Learning. We emphasize homework, open communication with school teachers and principals, and family involvement.

We continue to build our local partnerships and are happy to report that we secured new grant support over the last year from the Stranahan Foundation, Center for Nonprofit Resources, Toledo Rotary Foundation, and Toledo Community Foundation. We were also grateful to learn that IBC was selected as Toledo Chicks for Charity's 2011-2012 Charity. It is only with the continued support of local community that we will reach Toledo's most at-risk young people and help them become champions in life.
