Lots of ways you can support this great game, great cause, and most of all, great kids.
AYTEF’s mission is to enrich the lives of underserved youth through tennis and education, both on & off the court. To do this, we rely on generous donations, grants and various fundraising campaigns. Resources go towards computers, school supplies, tennis equipment, nutritious snacks, teachers and coaches. AYTEF is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and donations are tax-deductible. We accept donations through our secure donations site powered by Kindful that tracks all donations and sends detailed tax receipts directly to your email. With your help, AYTEF can continue to help every child in our program to achieve greatness. For those that donated in the past, we extend a warm thank you. And, to all that plan on donating in the future, a warm thank you in advance.

Thanks to our volunteers, AYTEF is able to make all of it’s Community Outreach Events free of charge. Volunteering is a rewarding activity and time well spent. All of our available events can be registered for via our online portal powered by LeagueApps. Whether you are a high school student needing community service hours, a parent of an event participant, a tennis player, a current coach or teacher, or a former coach or teacher, we want you! While a basic skill level is always appreciated, the only requirement is a willing mind, a set of caring hands, a big smile and a bigger heart. Again, thank you.
One of our newest initiatives is the Mentoring Program. The mentor is the ultimate volunteer. They give of their time and resources to help under-resourced or under-privileged youth. The goal is for the mentees to become the mentors themselves one day, creating a culture of giving back that will last for years to come. Our core program student athletes will be matched with mentors that will assist them academically and athletically. In turn, these juniors will be mentors to the younger ones, creating an opportunity to giveback, while yet being mentored themselves. As the CORE group gets older, mentors will be matched to specific fields of interests. The mentors will provide invaluable experience, insights and networking that will allow these aspiring mentees to begin their college and secular lives ‘up a break’, not down one.
