Annual Programming VISTA

New York, NY, United States // Full-Time

Beat the Streets New York (BTSNY), established in 2006, is a sport-based youth development organization whose mission is to develop the full human and athletic potential of urban youth and to strengthen the wrestling culture within New York City. BTSNY works with an average of 2,500 male and female student-athletes in all five boroughs, aged 10-18. Programs include the Academy, Junior League and Training Center. In addition, BTSNY partners with the New York City Department of Education’s Public Schools Athletic League (PSAL) that sponsors a boys and co-ed season in the winter and a girls season in the spring.

Summary: The Up2Us Sports VISTA project builds the capacity of host site organizations working to end the cycle of poverty through intentional youth sports and education programming.
