What We Do
The mission of Any Body Can Youth Foundation is to empower San Diego’s inner city youth to face life’s challenges without cowardice but with courage and dignity.
The Any Body Can Youth Foundation aims to provide an all-in-one after school program in a safe, inviting environment for youth in underserved areas of San Diego. Our unique concept includes both academic and athletic components.
The ABC Youth Foundation is equipped with a learning center and a gym where youth can take advantage of academic resources and boxing lessons. In addition to our year-round academic and athletic programs, we also offer our Bridging the Gap enrichment program during the summer break.
Our goal is to establish more facilities and share the ABC concept throughout areas across the nation to prevent drug and gang violence among youth.
