Session Title - The Streets Have No Waiting List

​Come hear about how we use boxing as our hook to inspire Detroit children to succeed academically. Khali will share his inspiring story which led to the organic development of this organization as it operates today. We'll share how the tenets of boxing, homework assistance, intensive interventions, career and college exposure help our students to succeed and raise their expectations for their own futures. Guided tours will explore our multi-function activity spaces in our new facility. We may even set you up to try your coordination on the speed bag!​
