Junior Instructor And Work Ready Program

This year Legacy’s Community Tennis Summer Camp will be
partnering with the Philadelphia Youth Network (PYN) and their
Work Ready program to provide Philadelphia youth ages 14-18
with a meaningful, paid work experience. The youth come from
communities throughout Philadelphia. In addition, the Lenfest
Foundation has provided important funding to Legacy to hire
additional young people who attend Philadelphia Schools to
serve as instructors. All of the youngsters will be working at one
of our 30 Community Tennis Summer Camp sites. By giving
young people access to early work opportunities they gain
essential skills such as communication, time management and
accountability which enable them to be prepared for the work
world. Preparing Philadelphia Youth to enter the workforce is
good for not only the youth themselves, but the communities in
which we serve.
