Our Impact

For over half a century, we have been proud to offer our youth so much more than tennis instruction as a grassroots community organization dedicated to holistic service. Today, the weight of our responsibility to serve our young people, their families, and Central Harlem with well-rounded programming is more significant than ever.

Our comprehensive program combines sports, education, and wellness initiatives, allowing us to not only teach tennis but also mentor and shape our young participants into future leaders. We understand that success extends beyond the tennis court, and we strive to provide them with the tools, guidance, and support needed to navigate their journeys through life with confidence.

We are committed to meeting the formidable challenges of our time head-on, with a relentless pursuit of excellence and unwavering strength; we believe in the transformative power of education, the importance of physical and mental well-being, and the potential for every young person to thrive when given the right opportunities; and we are steadfast in our mission to empower and equip them with the skills, resilience, and leadership abilities they need to overcome obstacles and seize opportunities. Together, we will always work to meet the difficult challenges of our time with excellence and strength.

"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!"
