Help us raise $15,000 during 2019 to make a safer Chicago.

Building on the achievements of the 2018 season, we want to grow and do more! Our goal this year is to raise $15,000.

Thanks to YOUR support we've been able to accomplish so much in south side communities:

  • We continued strengthening our staff by partnering with Up2Us Sports and Laureus Sports for Good Foundation to provide tailored training to our coaches and staff.
  • We served 106 kids and young adults through our MVP and Successful Youth Leaders (SYL) programs, including 23 young adults who together earned over $40,000 in wages while gaining professional experience.
  • Youth who participated in our Spring/Summer MVP Program spent up to 193 hours EACH on tutoring, outdoor conditioning and game play, and service learning activities.
  • 94.7% of parents surveyed believe that Lost Boyz programming helped prevent their child(ren) from being a victim of violence.
  • On average, participants in our 2018 Winter Clinic Program increased their school grades by 0.2 points (i.e. a B- to a B).
  • We received grants from After School Matters, Springboard Foundation, Prince Charitable Trusts, Laureus Sport for Good Foundation, Games 4 Good Foundation and others to expand our community impact and operating capacity.
