What We Do
BTEP utilizes the athletic platform in providing under-served sports programs with new equipment, while addressing the socioeconomic needs and emotional health of our communities through education, wellness and leadership.
BTEP has created a game-plan to become an integral part of transforming the lives of inner-city children and families in Mecklenburg County through the universal unifier of sports. Families of these students are diverse and eclectic, but face serious challenges from poverty, to crime, to unemployment and low educational attainment. We are proud to serve serve a challenging community that needs our support.
Through our programs of anti-bullying, shadowing and the arts we will create a diverse culture that will resemble a vibrant masterpiece of interwoven threads, known as “the tapestry.”
