About the National Tennis Foundation
The National Tennis Foundation (NTF), a nationally recognized charitable organization, has become a leading advocate for exceptional student athletes regardless of race or economic means. The NTF serves to elevate these players to grow and succeed on the court and in life by providing access to world-class academic and training programs.
Manhattan Youth Recreation and Resources, Inc. provides the highest quality childcare and after-school programs plus academic, recreational and cultural activities for children, families and individuals who live or work in Lower Manhattan, regardless of income. Our programs stimulate, challenge and strengthen children, teens, adults, seniors and families. Our services respond to the needs of our community; we are the only community-based organization serving these needs in Lower Manhattan.
Renowned as the financial center of the world, Lower Manhattan is rarely celebrated as the vital community of families, babies, toddlers and children of all ages that it is. Moreover, the well-being of our families is vital to the well-being of Lower Manhattan; to the office towers, large corporations, hundreds of small businesses, increasing numbers of cultural attractions and, by extension, to our city and nation. While average family income here is high, averages mask the extreme range of incomes and the needs of many Lower Manhattan families – needs that predate the devastation of 9/11, and that have grown since.
