Beat the Streets has not only given me a chance to give back to my community in a family safe and friendly environment, also the owner Tracy has also helped me one on one with my resume which created an extremely large difference in the attention I have received from employers. I would have never gotten some many emails from potential employers had it not been for Tracy taking the time to help me out and teach me tips on writing a flawless resume. I love being apart of the volunteer staff I feel like I have a second family here that only wants to better the community and the people in it. For anyone who know somebody or is somebody who needs help with getting back in school, financial information and knowledge, support and guidance I would recommend that you swing by, you wont regret it. We are all here to help one another with no judgement. I love the environment.

I am honored to be affiliated and a volunteer and supporter of this non-profit through out the years since its beginning. Because of the hardwork of its founders and board members young men and women are afforded a alternate opportunity to reach beyond the streets and seek knowledge and mentor ships for a better future. Keep up the good work.

As a member of the clergy, it is vital and essential to provide resources to individuals who seek to better themselves, develop skills and get education and training necessary to become a productive and functional part of our society.

The best thing about social media is picking up where you left off with childhood friends that you haven't seen in years. What's even nicer is learning that your friend is running a worthy non-profit for the betterment of the community. It all starts with great leadership, and Tracy Tate has the skills. I wish I could support her more.

I had the pleasure of meeting Mrs. Tate and designing Beat the Streets first website back in 2005, so I was able to witness the organization helping young adults in the community with their educational goals, living skills and most of all giving them hope for a better future. It's a good feeling of security to know that we have community organizations and leaders like Tracy out there who's looking out for the best interest of the kids, helping them get back into school and on the right track. Beat the Streets programs has been very successful in connecting with and helping young adults in the community.

I learned Beat the Streets from my AP Manager - Tracy Jones. She started this because of having a son, she wants only the BEST for him. Like any other parent, they would like their children to spend their time wisely and fruitfully. Keeping them busy with other tasks of helping other youths or young adults or honing their very own skills. There are a lot of things that these young children can do and accomplish by staying in an organization like Beat the Streets. There is always room for growth and the organization is not stopping in being innovative or thinking of ways and means to reach out to young adults and youths who may be becoming distracted or out of focus. In several chitchats with Tracy, they are planning to have like a computer center, where All Young Adults are welcome to learn basic computer skills. More Power to Beat the Streets! Keep It Up!
