At The Bloc, we don't get kids off the streets. We get them into success.

When fighters walk into our gym, fists clenched, ready to fight, they will be surrounded by dozens of names of people who support them. Your support is what leads them to unclench their fists, engage in enrichment activities, and propel themselves to uncommon academic and social growth.

Your support is allows us to embrace youth who have been rejected from many other outlets, expand our food pantry, and rise to meet the ever-changing needs of our community.

We need your help to scale our program and reach more young people with a program that has produced 100% high school graduation and college acceptance rates for 4 years. When you join the fight, you impact the youth whose success will have the greatest impact on our community-- fighters.

Join us in changing the game on Chicago's West Side.
