Our mission is to decrease violence, improve the social and emotional conditions, and provide financial opportunities among the youth in Chicago's South Shore community.
Lost Boyz Inc. is a not-for-profit organization with a common interest in community development in disadvantaged neighborhoods. Our efforts are directed towards revitalizing organized sports, fostering learning and innovation in our youth, promoting public safety, and stimulating local economics.
Lost Boyz currently serves approx. 120 girls and boys ages 4-17 through our MVP Youth Baseball & Softball Program. This program is divided into three components - Fall Ball, Winter Clinic, and Spring Training/League Play - spanning 10 months (January-October). Recognizing the importance of continuing development through young adulthood, Lost Boyz also provides additional social, educational, and professional opportunities for up to 40 individuals aged 16-24 under our Successful Youth Leaders Program.
Our programs help to promote discipline and social skills within our participants, while also keeping each youth involved in a positive, non-violent activity.
Lost Boyz is a great organization. Their mission and what they do for the kids in the community leaves a long lasting impact. The Executive Director, Board Chair and its constituents have a vested interest in the youth they serve.
Extremely good/needed cause that I witnessed the benefits and effects on young men in the South Shore community. This organization isn't just an idea, but they are making an impact on Chicago's young men, many of which return to the organization to help mentor other young men!!
