The Harlem Junior Tennis and Education Program (HJTEP) is a non profit organization that enables at risk youth ages 7-18 to learn the game of tennis. Teaching basic values like sportsmanship and discipline are part of HJTEP’s curriculum. HJTEP also teaches children lessons that can be applied to everyday life like fighting obesity, personal hygiene habits, as well as improving on communication skills.
HJTEP participants must maintain a 2.0 grade point average to remain in the program. Currently, the program’s participants average a 3.1 GPA. According to HJTEP, ninety percent of their participants receive a high school diploma. In comparison, the national average is 67 percent, with central Harlem graduating only 25 percent of their high school students. Ensuring that a child receives a good education is definitely an easy cause to get behind. HJTEP’s record speaks for itself in that regard.
On Monday, April 29, 2019, HJTEP will hold its annual spring gala in midtown Manhattan. The event will honor a host of A-list celebrities and some of the world’s most iconic tennis stars in history. For more information about the event, please visit www.hjtep.org or call (212) 491-3738
