Our Impact

HJTEP is so much more than a tennis program, we are a connected community and service organization. And now more than ever before, we feel the weight of our responsibility to our young people, their families, and the larger community. Together, we will face the difficult challenges of our time.

For more than 50 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, education and wellness 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 from 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!"
