On May 15, LCCCTA visited the MaliVai Washington Youth Foundation!
The MaliVai Washington Youth Foundation is an after-school youth development program in Jacksonville’s Urban Core promoting academic achievement and positive life skills through the sport of tennis for students in kindergarten through high school. They use tennis, daily homework assistance, and life skills curriculum to engage youth in an active and fun program. By correlating success on the court with success in life, MWYF fosters leadership, sportsmanship, self-esteem, confidence, discipline, accountability, and the value of hard work, teamwork, and individual effort.
The mission of the MaliVai Washington Youth Foundation is to develop champions in classrooms, on tennis courts and throughout communities. Since its inception, there have been 712 non-replicated students in the TnT program. In 21 years, over 20,000 children and their families have been impacted by MWYF and its programs.
We’re proud to partner with the MaliVai Washington Youth Foundation!
