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.
Currently, we have two youth baseball teams, the South Shore Patriots and the South Shore Yankees. We run our baseball program during the spring and summer months in Chicagos South Shore community. The targeted demographic for service can be described as youth ages 9 to 17. Both teams also participate in service learning and community service projects year round.
Our baseball teams help to promote discipline and social skills within our participants, while also keeping each youth involved in a positive, non-violent activity. These teams are funded through corporate donations, in-kind gifts, participant fees, and fundraising activities.
Mission: Lost Boyz Inc.'s mission is to decrease violence and improve the social conditions among the youth in the South Shore community. Our mission is achieved by providing quality athletic and leadership training, re-entry assistance, and innovative ideas geared for at-risk youth to align income and entrepreneurial opportunities.
