Empowering Youth Through Tennis & Education

Atlanta Youth Tennis & Education Foundation (AYTEF) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that provides free and low-cost tennis and education programs for youth in grades K-8. Located at Fair Oaks Tennis Center in Marietta, GA, we offer afterschool tennis programs five days a week, virtual and in-person academic enrichment, monthly community events, and summer camp opportunities.

 

In a community grappling with economic challenges, our priority is empowering youth through holistic development and wellness. Serving a diverse population, with roughly 90% of our participants coming from minority backgrounds, we strive to equip young individuals with the tools they need to thrive. Our programs, rooted in best practices and Sports Based Youth Development (SBYD) principles, focus on nurturing physical, academic, social, and emotional skills.

AYTEF is proud to be part of the USTA National Junior Tennis and Learning (NJTL) network, inspired by tennis legend Arthur Ashe's vision for social change. Through tennis, education, and character development, we aim to foster inclusivity and personal growth, making a positive impact on the lives of young individuals regardless of their background. Join us in creating lasting change through the power of sport and education!

I have tried to keep on with my striving because this is the only hope I have of ever achieving anything worthwhile and lasting.

-Arthur Ashe, African-American Tennis Legend
