Boston Youth Wrestling - Community Engagement & Development
Boston Youth Wrestling was founded in 2012 with the belief that -- through the sport of wrestling -- we can develop the traits and habits of success in the personal, academic, and athletic lives of youth of Boston. Our work is framed around teaching our wrestlers about healthy and positive relationships with their peers and adults, self-con┬┐dence, and a commitment to success in all aspects of life. Empowering our youth will make lasting change in our communities. In 2020 Beat the Streets Boston (BYW) will merge with Beat the Streets Providence to become Beat the Streets New England. Currently, Beat the Streets Boston (BYW) and Beat the Streets providence work directly in 30 public schools and Charter Schools, along with 6 community centers. In order to support our growth, we are looking for a Vista who has a creative mind and is resolution driven. - Build on the future sustainability of the organization by strengthening its infrastructure, effectively managing and developing its human resources, and improving its financial performance alongside the Executive Director. - Ensure that the organization's programs and services are aligned with its mission by taking an inventory of existing programs and services, identifying key program/service outcomes, measuring program/service effectiveness, and optimizing program/service delivery systems. - Define, refine, and communicate the organization's brand by gaining a better understanding of its position in the marketplace and developing an effective marketing and communication strategy. - Establish a framework to routinely evaluate growth opportunities, developing a growth strategy based on market needs, organizational resources, and alignment with the organization's mission.
