The Trenton Youth Wrestling and Learning Center is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization dedicated to offering wrestling and educational opportunities to young boys and girls throughout the greater Trenton, New Jersey area. A year-round athletic and support program for all young people, the programs of the center are designed to stimulate personal growth, build self-esteem and lifelong skills, and honor achievements by utilizing the sport of amateur wrestling as the vehicle.
The Trenton Youth Wrestling and Learning Center utilizes a unique combination of wrestling (physical exercise, team building and life skill learning), education (character, literacy, the arts and experiential) and community service to develop Trenton youth into well-rounded and confident individuals, ready to take their place in the world. We accomplish this through a partnering model with some of the best local and national organizations doing work in these distinct fields as well as tapping into the strong New Jersey wrestling community. No other organization in Trenton uses this mix of programming.
We are a school-based program for grades 3-8, currently operating at six local schools and with a goal to expand and scale the program to be present in all Trenton Public Schools (elementary and middle) and to become one of the best youth development programs in the country.
