DETROIT CITY LIONS
ONE ROAR, ONE PRIDE, ONE MISSION
The mission of the Detroit City Lions Youth Club (DCL) is to provide at-risk boys and girls (ages 3 - 15) access to much needed sports programs and academic services. To that end, our organization focuses on providing both traditional and non-traditional sports such as football, soccer, basketball, baseball, chess, lacrosse, swimming, gymnastics, dance, and cheer; as well as tutoring and mentoring services, STEAM programming, robotics, conflict resolution, leadership development, financial literacy and youth employment. Our efforts will help to cohesively develop healthy bodies and healthy minds of area youth, readying them to become physically and academically competitive in today's world. This makes Detroit City Lions one of the most diverse youth sports programs in the Metro Detroit area.
SPECIAL THANKS TO ALL OUR COMMUNITY PARTNERS
Hello, we are Devon and Bituin Buskin, co-founders of The Detroit City Lions Youth Club. DCL could not have grown in such a successful and impactful way, without the commitment of our community partners and supporters believing in our vision and mission for the youth of DCL. We at DCL truly believe that all youth across the city should have an opportunity for free play and free choice to participate in any organized sport. Because of your generous support, you have given multiple youth the opportunity to earn scholarships, which ultimately pays their registration cost for the year. Without partners like yourselves and our volunteers, this would not be possible. So again, thank you for your commitment to our youth, our city, and the communities we serve. Great partnerships & collaborations like ours, are key to positive sustainable outcomes for our youth and community. Again thank you for believing in the mission and vision of DCL, but most importantly, believing in and supporting the youth of Detroit and surrounding areas.
