About AAYTE: The mission of Arthur Ashe Youth Tennis and Education is to create opportunities for a diverse cross-section of young people, especially those from low-income families and communities, to make positive choices in their lives, remain in and succeed in school, reject violence and other risky behaviors, and grow into active, responsible and productive citizens. We work to achieve these goals through innovative tennis instruction, education, life skills, and leadership development programming in neighborhoods throughout the Philadelphia area and at the Arthur Ashe Youth Tennis and Education Center.
