George shared the community spirit of Carney’s Community on a Leaders’ Quest tip to Detroit.

He visited the Down Town Boxing Gym and met the team there.  Like Carney’s, they also use boxing to hook the interest of young people before then working intensively with them through mentoring and offering them other positive activities and an education.

George also spent the morning at one of their prisons with Aurelio (and friends), who served over 25years there. It was special to hear from the Detroit Blightbusters about how they have helped to create a welcoming community and cleaned up the city.
