Español | Español | Translation Sponsored by TCA

Beat the Streets National, an alliance of youth-development nonprofits with the mission of empowering and transforming the lives of under-resourced youth through the sport of wrestling, mentorship, and community, is proud to announce a partnership with Alston Construction. As part of this partnership, Alston Construction has made a commitment to assist Beat the Streets National in their mission by offering internships and work opportunities to interested Beat the Streets alumni.

“At Alston Construction, we understand that our youth are our future,” said Bob Murray, senior vice president of Alston Construction and Beat the Streets visionary. “We are committed to not only investing in Beat the Streets National financially, but also creating opportunities for growth and development for the youth of Beat the Streets. By bringing the young talent and work ethic of Beat the Streets alumni, and connecting them with the construction industry, it can provide meaningful jobs to an industry that suffers from a workforce shortage.”

With more than 23 offices nationwide, Alston Construction’s partnership with Beat the Streets offers an opportunity to create meaningful impacts in the lives of Beat the Streets youth across the entire country. The efforts to help Beat the Streets alumni have grown from one company taking an interest in the future of these young people to multiple construction-industry companies joining the movement. Concrete Strategies, 3LLC, Al Dock Doors, GEMCO, Leviat, and Tilt-Up Concrete Association have all made commitments in the past few months to help advance the mission of Beat the Streets.

“Beat the Streets currently serves 10,000 youth from underserved communities, but with strong sustainable partnerships, like the one with Alston Construction, Beat the Streets will be able to take our mission of positively altering the lives of the youth we serve to thousands  more youth across the country!” said Ben Reiter, executive director of Beat the Streets National. “We are proud to partner with Alston Construction and bring our youth full circle!”

Beat the Streets is unique in its approach to youth development as it delivers a research-based curriculum with trained coaches in a safe and inclusive environment. Through the sport of wrestling, mentorship, and community, Beat the Streets provides life skills to under-resourced youth to transform their lives and empower them to build a brighter future.
