i-Open Technologies shows continued efforts to support local youth through partnership with Abbotsford-Mission Boxing Club

i-Open Technologies investment in Mission youth hopes to inspire responsibility in future leaders

Mission, BC, July 24, 2018 — The i-Open Technologies management team is proud to fund a new boxing program targeting at-risk-youth in the Fraser Valley through a partnership with Dale Gatin and the Abbotsford-Mission Boxing Club.

i-Open Technologies believes that in order for at-risk-youth to succeed, their energy and focus must be applied towards something meaningful, including, but not limited to, education, arts, and sports. i-Open’s newly defined initiative, which began in the spring of 2015, aims to create a culture for at-risk-youth to contribute to their community by allowing them to be part of something greater than themselves.

Dale Gatin, founder of Abbotsford-Mission Boxing Club, notes:

“Our goal is to provide a positive atmosphere for youth. Individuals learn to develop a strong work ethic, discipline, physical conditioning and a positive way of dealing with the stresses of day-to-day challenges.” 

Classes will be held in the evenings, allowing students to fulfill their academic responsibilities during the daytime. The program aims to instill confidence, happiness, dedication, and discipline among youth, encouraging them to contribute value to their communities through achievement in sports.

Raymond Szabada, CEO, i-Open Technologies, notes:

“At i-Open, we believe there is always more that can be done with-in our community to support skills development, mentorship and addressing social challenges. At-risk-youth is one such area we are targeting with this program. We are thrilled to support Dale Gatin and the Abbotsford-Mission Boxing club in their quest to target this significant challenge. I look forward to working alongside Dale and his club to advance this critical work and will strive to involve other local business and community leaders to support this initiative.”

The program will be available once again in the Fall of 2018 at Fraserview Learning Centre located in Mission, British Columbia. To donate or to get involved, please contact [email protected]
