Tenacity is a rapidly growing youth development organization providing intensive athletic, academic, and life skills development programs to Boston youth. The mission of Tenacity is to improve the scholastic, character, and physical development of urban youth by combining tennis instruction and academic support with a focus on life skills. This vision is realized by two distinct yet complementary core programs: the three-year Middle School Academy program (MSA) consisting of intensive tennis, literacy, and life-skills development tutoring for Boston middle school students, and the Summer Tennis and Reading Program consisting of free tennis instruction and reading for children ages 7-15 offered in partnership with Boston Centers for Youth and Families (BCYF).
