Our Mission:


noun | well·ness |  \ ˈwel-nəs \


  1. the quality or state of being healthy in body and mind, especially as the result of deliberate effort.

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.

Tips from the EOBA students, staff, families, and community.





EOBA serves youth ages 5-20 

To enroll your child or young adult in our after-school or summer program.


EOBA's afterschool program follows the OUSD school schedule. programing runs M, Tu, Th from 3pm-6pm and W and F from 12-6pm. Youth must attend the afterschool program at least 3 days a week in order to remain enrolled. 

A parent or legal guardian is required to attend a program orientation on Wednesdays at 5:30pm.

*EOBA offers free transportation in partnership with selected schools within a 2-mile radius to ensure that students have a safe and reliable way to participate in programming daily when other modes of transportation are not available to them.

“Last year, one of my students started showing up at school with no homework; I was afraid I was seeing the start of a negative cycle. But this year was different. My student gets space, time, and real help at EOBA completing his homework. I also know that because of EOBA, his older brother doesn't have to babysit his younger brothers after school."
