LostBoyz Mission

Lost Boyz Inc.'s mission is to decrease violence, improve the social and emotional conditions, and provide financial opportunities among the youth in Chicago's South Shore community. With baseball training and competitive participation as our core drivers, our mission is achieved through high-intensity mentoring, intervention, and social entrepreneurship activities. We also incorporate cultural awareness, service learning, and civic engagement. We use this combination of programming and direct interaction to positively and permanently impact the lives of school age youth, resulting in life-altering character development and improved decision making.

"My son was headed down a path of destruction, I couldn't do too much with him -- the streets had a very strong hold. Thanks to Lost Boyz mentorship, Corey quit the gang, graduated 8th grade with a B average, and got accepted with a baseball scholarship to high school."
