Valdosta - Boxing for Christ was started by a local church to help keep young members of the community away from crime
"The aim of the program is to get young men off the streets, give them something to do and make them a valuable member of society," says Pastor JD Martin.
But they say it teaches them much more than boxing. "I came from a broken home myself and I didn't have a father figure to help me understand life and that's what we are here for," says Chaplain Richard Morrison.
They hope by offering a positive mentor both in and out of the ring will help lead these kids down the right path.
Justin Williams is a perfect example that the program is off to a good start. "If I wasn't here, I'd be getting in a lot of trouble," he says.
Now Justin is staying out of trouble and a mentor to the other kids, and has the program to thank. "I come back every weekend and some days during the week. I know on the weekends, that's when most of the trouble goes on so I just stay here," Williams adds.
Boxing for Christ volunteers are hoping to begin a program for women next year.
