Boxing + Academics Impact Story
While canvassing in Nickerson Gardens, staff came across Angel’s mother. We explained the program and safety measures. She was overjoyed, even shed tears. She told us how Angel was falling behind due to her not knowing English and not being able to undertand the technology being used for distant learning. She also mentioned Angel not paying attention when she would get him connected. Since Angel has been coming daily to the program, he has caught up on his missing assignments, homework and tests! –Staff at Nickerson Gardens
