At Legacy Youth Tennis and Education our goal is to use tennis as a vehicle through which to prepare young people to be successful on the court, in their communities and in the world.
By delivering programming around the USTA player development characteristics of confidence, determination, engagement, professionalism, resilience, respect, teamwork and toughness, and continuing the vision of Arthur Ashe, Legacy students gain the leadership and life skills necessary to open doors to possibilities for bright futures.
Legacy’s Director of Education, Jude Henzy coordinates off-court curriculum including:
- USTA ACE (life skills)
- USTA STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math)
- Read by 4th Program sites, in partnership with the Free Library of Philadelphia
- Train Up First (TUF) Life Skills curriculum
Additionally, the organization partners with after-school tutors from Drexel University and Rutgers Camden to complement a number of our after-school program sites.
Education resources at the center include a library and classroom with computer lab.
