Lost Boyz

Program Description

Founded in September of 2008 by LaVont? Stewart Sr., Lost Boyz Inc. is a non-for-profit, grass-roots organization engaged in community development within Chicago's South Shore neighborhood.

Our organization services youth girls and boys ages 4 to 18 through our baseball/softball and SYL programs from February until August of every year. Our target population is focused primarily on ultra high-risk youth, incarcerated youth, alienated youth, low income youth, and abused youth. As a result of our efforts since 2008, over 210 children from the South Shore community and 32 children detained in the Illinois Youth Center (IYC) have stayed trouble free for a range of four to nine months while occupied with our athletic and youth leadership activities.
