A champion of youth sports and education, nine-time All-Star and former Yankee Carlos Beltran set up his non-profit organization The Carlos Beltran Foundation to support community organizations that provide quality education and sports programs for underserved youth.

Through years of hard work and generous contributions, Beltran and his wife Jessica were able to open The Carlos Beltran Academy in Puerto Rico, which provides a dynamic learning experience where young people can develop and enhance their athletic gifts and strive for academic excellence in preparation for leading responsible and productive lives as compassionate global citizens, and to empower youth to achieve their dreams through sports and education.
