Our Mission

The Good Fight’s charitable mission is to provide at-risk and disadvantaged youth with hope, encouragement, and a safe environment to develop personal goals, discipline, and values free from juvenile delinquency, substance abuse, truancy, crime gang activities, and other difficult challenges.

Our Vision

Our vision is to instill discipline and values among at risk and disadvantaged youth, to lift them out of poverty, to provide them with training and opportunities, and to motivate them to become productive members of society.

My son, Braeden, absolutely LOVES The Good Fight! He’s only been going a couple of months but already have seen an improvement in his overall confidence level.

Thank You to All Our Volunteers

We would like to recognize our host of volunteer staff members over the years committed to preparing our students for life. From mentoring and tutoring, art and music, boxing and those volunteers with no specific role, they are there to support our youth! Without you, we could not fulfill the mission and vision of The Good Fight!
