About Harlem Jr. Tennis & Education
The Harlem Junior Tennis and Education Program (HJTEP), is a not-for-profit organization that has kept its doors open nearly 365 days a week for the past 50 years to boys and girls who reside in the high-risk, low-income neighborhood of Central Harlem, and other parts of NYC. The majority of our student-athlete population are students of color. During the school year we serve 800+/- students, and enroll between 150-300 students in our summer programs.
What our student-athletes experience on the courts, and in our education & wellness programs, develops the whole child—in sports, school and life. Tennis teaches kids essential life skills, sportsmanship, self-discipline, social and emotional competence, as well as how to fight obesity and lead healthier lives. Each week, they also dedicate time to improving their academic excellence and communication skills, working on self-development, and a consistently supported positive code of conduct. We leverage tennis as a medium to provide academic and athletic support, and to promote physical and mental wellness among a diverse group of inner-city youth.
Champions in school, tennis, and life, our success is measured holistically: encapsulating what children do on the court, how they perform in the classroom, and how they navigate their futures. Participation in HJTEP's enrichment programs instills students with confidence, strengthens executive functioning skills and character to help them become leaders in their communities and beyond.
