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.
