Fist of Gold gives special attention to young people. Cooperating with the City of Pomona California and local nonprofits like the YMCA and the Boys and Girls Club, Fist of Gold attempts to reach the youth who will benefit most from the programs. Students in the at-risk years of 8-18 have access to physical fitness training and a relationship with other students who are working hard to realize their potential. Grants and membership dues offset the cost of operations. Scholarships are available subject to eligibility.

Outreach is by referral, local schools, other youth non-profit programs and the City. Since 1993, more than 500 young people have participated in the program. For students interested in competitive boxing, Coach Castaneda provides additional instruction and oversight to assist in the eventual involvement in USA sanctioned amateur boxing. The boxing team travels to various local, regional, national and international competitions.

Learning the technical side of boxing through determination and competition, young men and women challenge themselves to a new level of strength both physically and mentally. They learn skill, focus and perseverance, accumulating character-building determination. They walk a little taller, aim a little higher, and realize their dreams are within their reach.
