Mission Statement

Legacy Youth Tennis and Education creates opportunities for a diverse cross-section of young people, especially those from under-resourced families and communities, to make positive choices in their lives, remain in and succeed in school, reject violence and other risky behaviors, and grow into active, responsible, and productive citizens.  We work to achieve these goals through innovative tennis instruction, education, life skills, and leadership development programming in neighborhoods throughout the Philadelphia area and at the Legacy Youth Tennis and Education Center.
