Welcome to the Beat the Streets Toronto Team Dejah and Simi! : Sponsored by Canada Summer Jobs

This year Beat the Streets Toronto Received the Canada Summer Jobs Grant for 6 staff. We are pleased to introduce the first two of our six summer staff: Simi Jayeoba and Dejah Slater

Back in 2016 I met these two amazing young women, they were both very green to the sport of wrestling, brimming with enthusiasm and full of potential. Little did I know that they would embark on such awesome high school careers. Dejah would become a multiple time national champion and multiple-time OFSSA champion while Simi would excel in her academics averaging mid-to-high 90s throughout academic career and achieving academic scholarship standards and gaining acceptance to the McMaster University Science Department. 

These two ladies great role models to our current Beat the Streets Toronto student-athletes. They embody the ideals that we share with our student athletes. Ideals like working hard, having a strong mindset, perseverance and dedication to your sport and education, a deep focus in working through your tasks and achieving your goals. 

It is our pleasure to have them return and work with us this summer through the Canada summer jobs grant program. we are very excited about the work they're going to be doing and how it's going to impact Beat the Streets Toronto in a positive way moving forward. We are very confident that they will put all that they've learned over the years into their efforts this summer and we're excited about the results. 


Welcome back Dejah and Simi!

A Summer Job to Remember

Hello world!

This introductory blog post officially kicks off my summer experience working with Beat the Streets Toronto and coming to understand the ins and outs of a non-profit organization.

First and foremost, I would like to thank Canada Summer Jobs for allowing me to gain such an experience. Through their support, I am able to not only work alongside great people towards a great cause, I also get to overcome some of the financial strains of being a university student. I first became involved with Beat the Streets Toronto as a curious 10th grader looking to get as good as possible at wrestling. Their community practices became regular for me over the next three years before I began attending McMaster University and now I again get the chance to be involved with them.

There are a great number of things that I am anticipating to gain from my work with Beat the Streets Toronto. I am certainly looking forward to being able to learn just what it takes to run a non-profit organization. For instance, I’m eager to understand what goes into the process of researching and applying for grants. In addition to this, I’m really looking forward to being able to creatively share lessons I have learned as a young wrestler. There are so many important ways that wrestling has helped me grow and expand my understanding of things and this summer gives me a chance to share those lessons through blogs post such as this one. Moreover, to be able to have a tangible role in helping BTST get more of the attention it deserves through their social medias is another exciting task to look forward to.

“I am confident that this job experience will leave me with knowledge and memories I will carry with me beyond this summer.”

I have big plans for my future as an engineer and gaining an understanding of how to run an organization will be a great skill to have in my toolkit. Learning how to increase my productivity and deliver content efficiently will help me presently as a student in university. Also, practicing how to express myself through venues such as social media and blogs in a way that is of value to others is a powerful asset to carry with me.


Overall, I am very hopeful to what the rest of my summer working experience with Beat the Streets Toronto has in store for me and am sure this will be a summer to remember. Wishing you the best of summer and make sure to check back with me soon!


All the best,

Simi Jayeoba
