The SYL Youth non-contact boxing program has worked with schools in the Toronto District, running on site programming at various schools. Contact Joanne Green at email@example.com if you want to offer a SYL Youth program at your school or organization.
In 2019 – 2022, Brock University received funding from the Public Health Agency of Canada to further expand the SYL Youth program. With $320,000 in federal funding, we worked with over 850 youth, trained over 42 coaches and youth workers, and supported under-serviced youth, including youth living in foster care. Miranda Kamal and the coaches from MJKO Boxing in Toronto were an integral part of the growth of the SYL Youth program – it was a pleasure to work with an incredible youth organization, especially during a global pandemic where access to safe, trauma-informed physical activity was particularly vital.
