We have opportunities for kids to develop skills in one or more of 4 SPUT Leadership Pathways: Tennis, Education, Employment, and Service.

How We Do It

We believe every youth should have access to quality mentorship, healthy living, and positive relationships. Through donations of time, energy, money, and goods, we’re able to make sure that barriers are as minimal as possible. No child is turned away based on inability to pay, lack of equipment, or their identity background.
