Lost Boyz Joins After School Matters

The inspiration for After School Matters arose more than two decades ago from the desire of then-Chicago First Lady Maggie Daley and former Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs Commissioner Lois Weisberg to develop cultural activities for the city’s teenagers. Since 1991, ASM has had an impact on 200,000 teens. Here at Lost Boyz, we are ecstatic to join the many organizations in ASM who truly make a difference in the lives of Chicago Youth! READ MORE

Winter Clinic Updates

Each year, Winter Clinic gets better and better. With the CYC Rebecca K. Crown Youth Center’s continued partnership, we were able to serve youth right in the community. This season, our program had an impact on 42 youth boys and girls, ages 8-17.
See below for data on our Winter Clinic program!
  • We’ve held 29 sessions with each participant spending 58 hours over the course of 8 weeks practicing baseball and exercising
  • 92% of parents surveyed agreed with the statement, “Being involved in Lost Boyz helped prevent my child from being influenced by street gangs, violence, or any other negative activities as this program provided a safe indoors option and motivational guidance.”
  • 77% of parents surveyed agreed with the statement, “By participating in Winter Clinic, my child exercised more than he/she normally would have."
