USTA Foundation's National Junior Tennis & Learning Network
The USTA Foundation is the charity for the National Governing Body of tennis, and whose mission is to provide tennis and education to under-resourced youth in over 250 communities through NJTL chapters.
In 1969, the National Junior Tennis League was created as a way to gain and hold the attention of young people, with the hope of teaching them the importance of character, getting an education and becoming productive citizens.
Today, the now-named National Junior Tennis and Learning network features more than 250 nonprofit youth development organizations that offer free or low-cost tennis and education programming to more than 160,000 under-resourced youth each year.
NJTL is supported by the USTA Foundation, the national charitable organization of the USTA. The work done by its member chapters includes after-school tutoring that focuses on academic enrichment, a life-skills curriculum and, of course, tennis.
