MILTON, Mass. – The Curry College women's tennis team hosted children from Tenacity, a program that serves nearly 5,000 Boston youth ages 6-16 through our Summer Tennis & Reading Program (STRP) held at 23 public parks across the city, on Saturday afternoon at the Trent J. Scott '96 Tennis Courts. This program is offered free-of-charge on summer weekday mornings and afternoons. The Colonels assisted in running the clinic and played fun games with the attendees.
Tenacity programs meet a critical need for positive, enriching after-school, in-school and summer programs for Boston youth. Tennis and fitness activities draw interest from kids who might otherwise have few athletic outlets. These athletic activities are tied with literacy, tutoring, and mentoring programs to help build academic motivation and achievement. Tenacity put special emphasis on helping students navigate the pivotal transition periods between middle school and high school and high school and post-secondary pursuits like college, joining the military, or learning a trade.
