Using boxing as a model of discipline, courage, and perseverance, EOBA provides high-quality programming and services that promote mental and physical wellness, academic achievement, and build vital life skills. We create space for youth to practice, hone, and internalize the tools and attitudes needed to be exemplars of wellbeing for their peers, families, and communities.
While EOBA is surrounded by communities plagued with illegal dumping, industrial buildings, and environmental pollution, the garden provides space for students to reconnect with the Earth and develop respect for green spaces.
