Our mission Building positive self-esteem, confidence, and a pathway to post-secondary success for less advantaged youth through in-school, after school and summer tennis and educational programs. Goals Integrate life skills with the sport of tennis, focusing on social-emotional skills. Provide under-served youth with tennis instruction and history of the sport as it pertains to minority involvement to increase participants’ ability to see beyond the social norms. Partner with schools and community organizations to provide an enriching curriculum that meets a critical need for physical and academic success. (Skills on the court will translate into everyday life and educational environments.) Empower young people to make healthy lifestyle choices through mental and physical fitness.
