A recent episode of WYPR’s Life in the Balance featured 2017 OSI Community Fellow  Alex Long’s Team Redemption Boxing Gym program. Long, a member of Safe Streets, a violence prevention program in McElderry Park, started the boxing program for youth ages 10-15 in 2015 but was able to expand and strengthen with his fellowship. The gym, he says, is more than a place for kids to let off steam; it’s a “safe space for kids to get strong both physically and emotionally.”

Listen to the program here.
