PCWC VALUE STATEMENT
The PCWC staff and supporters believe that every young person deserves the opportunity to discover their strengths, develop their self-esteem, and create their own futures. Wrestling for PCWC provides a way for the youth to do just that! Through positive mentoring and expert coaching, the youth not only develop strong wrestling skills, but also a network of supportive adults and peers holding them accountable and encouraging them to be their best selves on the mat, in the classroom and in their community. Through peer-to-peer coaching and mentoring, the youth pay it forward to future generations while cultivating and teaching leadership skills that will open many doors beyond the wrestling gym.
