Looking for other ways to stay involved in Providence this summer? We asked community organizations from around the city to send information about their summer programs. The following programs are not sponsored by or affiliated with the City of Providence.
Beat the Streets starts after-school wrestling programs that provide both youth development and academic support. They use wrestling instruction and competition as an incentive for students who otherwise would not choose to participate in after-school programming, to learn the study and life habits they need to succeed. The program draws the students in to learn about how to study, persevere in school and in life, and hear the stories and experience of their adult community mentors to expand their own conception of who they can become. This effort is a crucial part of creating an after-school environment that will ensure every student finds their passion, their personal path to success, and, ultimately, that no student is left behind.
