Coaches in Training is an innovative program that blends mentorship, youth leadership, workforce development, and coaching into one amazing summer.

Thanks to initial funding from the Shannon Community Initiative through the State Executive Office of Public Safety and the Boston Police Department, as well as additional funding from the Boston Centers For Youth And Families, the Mayor’s Youth Employment Fund, and the Lenny Zakim Fund, each year BYW hires between 5-8 youth every summer to work in a leadership development program that trains them on coaching and mentorship, and then sends them out to community partners across the city to work with young people at our mini-camps, teaching them the fundamentals of wrestling and serving as role-models to the youngest ones in our community. This innovative approach has created a participant-to-coach pipeline which sustains our coaching ranks with former participants who best understand the needs of our youth. To date, three graduates of our CIT program have continued on to work as middle school coaches for our program since 2017.
