Y.A.F. sponsors a non-profit boxing team that was started by long-time posse member Walt Hoskins
in April 1987. This program was created to give youth ages 8 through 18 a positive alternative
to gangs and drugs. The program’s main goals are to teach young people about commitment, discipline,
and team work, as well as to provide an excellent resource for building and maintaining self-esteem
and confidence. The team relies on funding from the Y.A.F. to attend numerous tournaments each year.
In conjunction with the Youth Assistance Foundation, this boxing program has produced over 30 national
Junior Golden Gloves winners since its inception. For more information call 623-849-9103.
