Action Youth Boxing Intervention (AYBI) is a grassroots community organisation empowering young people through sports. We formulate programmes based on cognitive behavioural therapy, rational behaviour therapy, social life skills, and motivation.
AYBI work prevents young people from entering the cycle of criminality and to make positive life choices. Our interventions in schools and in the community delivers mentoring and training programme throughout Camden and Islington.
Using CBT & REBT, AYBI trainers offer children and young people an alternative outlook on education, health and well-being. AYBI successfully merge boxing with CBT & REBT theories to stimulate a new narrative about youth issues and behaviour change.
