Mission Statement
The Somerville Youth Development & Boxing Club will be in existence in order to help foster and promote positive development in young people. This will be accomplished through positive role modeling, developing leadership potential, and bolstering self esteem. Having this program in place will provide youth with a chance to become aware of the dangers of alcohol and drugs while providing them with a safe and stable setting in which to productively release those feelings which may influence negative choices. Utilizing this program as an option for exercise and as a means to help combat childhood obesity will only serve to enhance the recreational opportunities for the youth of the City of Somerville.
