Monkstown is one of the most deprived areas in County Antrim.
The number of people with a degree or higher qualification is 8.4% lower than the Northern Ireland average.
But a local boxing club is helping young people fight back against the statistics.
Monkstown Boxing Club received almost £600,000 from the National Lottery Community Fund for their #INYOURCORNER project.
The five-year project is designed to improve the health, well-being and increase the employability of young people in the area.
