For more than 45 years, HJTEP has worked to meet the educational needs of youth from high risk, low income, inner city neighborhoods in New York City. A blended sports and education program have helped us to teach, mentor and shape our program participants into leaders ready for the next steps on their journeys.
- Serve approximately 800 students annually
- 95% of our participants graduate form high school
- 80% are admitted to leading private and public universities
- Our students have an average GPA of 3.1
"Not only does HJTEP offer an amazing tennis program, but they stress the importance of education which is a parent's dream! They talk about it to the kids and they talk about it to the parents, offering several tutoring and enrichment programs to help kids succeed at school. I think that speaks volumes about a sports program!"
