The Nanyapura Boxing program was a free boxing program Pathfinders organised back in 2017. It has seen heart-warming results in school attendance and community mentorships for the local youth, and it added support for the youth, families, carers and community leaders who attended.
The Nanyapura Boxing Program contributed to a #GreaterArmidale by providing troubled youth as well as children, families and community leaders a free opportunity to engage in fitness and education while building positive mentoring relationships.
Three times a week local police, social workers, parents and more were boxing alongside the youth during the fitness portion before everyone ate breakfast. The youth were then engaged in an educational class before being driven to school.
