Taking home the 2022 USTA GA National Junior Tennis and Learning (NJTL) Chapter of the Year award is not only a reflection of the hard work and dedication of our incredible team members, but also a reflection of how each one of our supporters chose to endow AYTEF with time, talent, and treasure. To whom much is given, much is required, and our team will continue to pursue a standard of excellence as we meet the needs of the youth we serve. Thank you for choosing to partner with us. Without you, our successes would not be possible.

-Kirsten Robles,  AYTEF Executive Director

Kennesaw State University Youth Tennis Day

AYTEF is extremely fortunate to have an incredible partnership with Kennesaw State University. Both the Men's and Women's Tennis Teams are active volunteers at our AYTEF Block Party, and this spring, AYTEF youth had the opportunity to support the collegiate players during a home match. Our kids participated in a Q&A session and tennis clinic with the KSU women’s team and watched the KSU men’s team compete in the doubles point.


AYTEF Helps Youth Develop On and Off the Court

AYTEF's GameSetMatch program is about more than just tennis. We strive to help children ACHIEVE both on and off the court. GameSetMatch youth have the option to participate in weekly academic enrichment and life-skills development programming. AYTEF's curriculum helps youth develop stronger study skills, critical thinking, and Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) skills that are essential for life-long success and achievement. Click the links below to view pictures and videos of each of the activities our youth have completed since the start of 2023.

AYTEF Celebrates Black History Month

AYTEF explored Black History Month through the lens of open versus closed- mindedness. Open-mindedness helps us make others feel welcome and accepted despite our differences, and it allows us to look at other perspectives and understand them, regardless of our own. AYTEF youth created presentations and drawings to share what they learned about inspiring Black leaders, athletes, poets, and politicians.


Congrats to the AYTEF youth who won first prize in the science fair at their respective schools. We are so proud of your academic achievements!

If your child is interested in science experiments or computer coding, check out AYTEF's STEM Learning Labs Program. We recently awarded 3 AYTEF STEM participants with scholarships for a week of STEM summer camp.
