Strengthening the character and enhancing the lives of youth by providing opportunities and instruction in nutrition, education and tennis.

Mission & Vision

MISSION STATEMENT

National Junior Tennis & Learning of Trenton creates opportunities for success by enriching the lives of under-resourced youth through innovative tennis, education, and mentoring programs.

VISION

During the plan period, we envision bold expansion of our programs, physical infrastructure and geographic reach. In Trenton, we will expand our mentoring programs and increase scholarship opportunities, deepening our partnership with the Christina Seix Academy through a new indoor tennis facility and investing in a headquarters that will serve as a hub for indoor programs and a community learning center. We will also increase the use of the renovated Cadwalader Park tennis facility and complete the redevelopment of the Villa Park tennis facility. Moving beyond Trenton, we plan to start providing our programs and services in Newark and then to youth in need in other parts of New Jersey.
