Support ReDirect Youth Outreach & Boxing

What is ReDirect Youth Outreach & Boxing?

  •  ReDirect Youth Outreach & Boxing is a local Reno/ Sparks nonprofit that services at-risk youth in our community through fitness and boxing. ReDirect has created a program that allows youth to use fitness and boxing as their coping skill for their daily lives. Many of the youth that ReDirect serves struggle with a variety of mental health diagnosis, disabilities, behavioral issues and much more. It has been proven that fitness and physical activity is one of the top outlets to manage anger, aggression, anxiety, depression and much more. It is also very instrumental in keeping kids off the street, out of trouble and away from drugs and alcohol.
  • Many of our youth participants are currently in a foster care placement, come from broken or abusive homes, suffer from a mental health condition, struggle with anger/aggression, or are continually finding themselves in trouble because they had nowhere positive to turn. Our goal is to provided these youth with that safe place to work through their challenges and have someone who cares for them to lean on. We take our youth through a variety of fitness activities including now being registered as a USA Boxing club. We have created a team environment for our youth to be apart of and supported in by their coaches and team.
  • The program is provided at no or little cost to the youth or their family! Currently ReDirect has 41 youth on full scholarship with more than 50 on the waiting list. In addition to providing fitness as an outlet, ReDirect provides all youth that set foot in the facility with meals, clothing, a safe place to shower, hygiene products, and as needed tutoring.

Sponsor Volunteering

We love having our sponsors working in the gym with us!  One of our sponsors, Joey Gilbert, volunteers his time everything Thursday night to work with our Youth Outreach Boxers.  Joey was previously ranked #3 in the world by the World Boxing Organization (WBO) and #7 in the world by the World Boxing Council (WBC). Joey was formerly both WBO-NABO and WBC-USNBC Middleweight Champion—2006 & 2007.  We appreciate that Joey is now sharing his love for boxing with our group along side our ReDirect Boxing coach Marcell LaGrone on Thursday nights.
