It's simple: without volunteers, TennisWorks wouldn't work. Our programs rely on the collective power of volunteer coaches, mentors, tutors, friends and role models to empower and inspire our students.
TennisWorks is a big program; we serve around 400 students from 3rd-12th grade every year. It's thanks to the generosity of dozens of volunteers that we can say that. They are the backbone of our after-school, evening and weekend programs, allowing us to offer truly personalized support and guidance to our students. Over the 2016-2017 school year, volunteers gave more than 1000 hours to our education programs--a contribution whose value we estimate at nearly $10,000.
Our volunteers range from junior players to college students to longtime patrons; some play tennis, others pick up a racquet for the first time along with our TennisWorks students. All we ask of our volunteers is that they come ready to laugh, play, teach and learn.

We also have a continuous need for volunteers to help run our Little Stars classes for 5-8 year olds, a position we often fill with high school players from our Junior Program. Interested in volunteering with Little Stars? Contact Junior Program Director Clay: email@example.com.
