Founded in 2019, Beat the Streets Bay Area is committed to improving the lives of girls and boys through exposure to the sport of wrestling. Beat the Streets Bay Area seeks to engage each child in a way unique to youth athletics - focusing holistically on the full human and athletic potential of our athletes.
We will provide positive role models and mentorship for participating wrestlers, as well as structural guidance and oversight for partner school districts. We will help our athletes mature into self-confident, responsible, and engaged citizens who are eager to live productive lives and become contributing members of their communities. We will focus on leadership, college readiness, and career pathways in local industry, specifically technology due to proximity.
Theory of Change
Leveraging wrestling, BTS Bay Area aims to empower youth to overcome the challenges they face in life be they socio-economic, educational, health, or relationship based. Teaching skills such as self-discipline, the value of hard work, and working as part of a team, our athletes learn life skills that apply both on and off the mat, allowing them to reach their potential.
