Street 2 Street is the culmination of a vision arising from the ashes of September 11, 2001. Woody and Renee Woodfin, veteran staffers with Campus Crusade’s Student Venture high school outreach, first traveled to New York City shortly after the terrorist attacks to minister to teenagers impacted by the tragedy. What they encountered was a world of kids whose despair began long before terror struck the Big Apple.
The inaugural Street 2 Street tournament held in Brooklyn in August 2005 attracted over 150 teens. Every participant enjoyed a rare moment of recognition as a champion on the court. And every participant also heard the message of hope found only in Christ, leading to 25 personal commitments.
With exponential growth fueled by passionate kids, dedicated volunteers, and generous donors, Street 2 Street is poised to expand across the United States.
