MEN OF LOYALTY YOUTH BOXING TRAINING PROGRAM, Inc.
a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization was established in January 2019, with our first session held at the TC Miller building in Orange Park Florida, where several parents showed up to sign their child up for youth boxing fundamentals training. The program was established to fill in the gaps of the lack of extra-curricular activities available to local youth and the need to step in and help aid local crime in the city by offering a low-cost means for youth to come together to learn a professional sport. We believe if a city does not have youth buildings and activities for youth to focus their attention on they can become idle and that idle energy can cause them to become victim to bad influences and crime. The Founder Gerald Jefferson wanted to give back to the youth in his community, he wanted to offer them an athletic skill which is something he had to abandon at a young age due to inadequate home conditions growing up even though he was a very talented athlete himself, with football being his sport of choice although he loves all sports. Years later he understands the needs of youth especially minority youth and keeping them focused, off the streets and away from bad influences so he established the Men of Loyalty Youth Boxing Training Program, Inc. a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization serving youth in Duval, Clay County and surrounding areas.
The Men of Loyalty Youth Boxing Training Program has had over 100 youth sign up between different training locations In Orange Park and Jacksonville Florida and we continue to have new enrollments every week. We truly believe that it is possible to redirect negative or idle energy in early stages of life if youth are given the opportunity and the attention they need to thrive.
