Theory of Change
Using wrestling as a tool and motivator BTS Bay Area teaches youth to successfully overcome socio-economic challenges that lead to educational gaps, poor health, and negative community relationships, imparting skills such as self reliance, discipline, and commitment to others that apply both on and off the mat, in school, and beyond.
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.
