We partner with several Twin Cities schools to offer students access to The Fort.
We collaborate with other Twin Cities organizations that are working to inspire youth.
School partners are critical to the success of TennisWorks. When we have the opportunity to work directly with teachers and classroom assistants, we can make direct connections between what students experience on the court at The Fort and what they learn at school, strengthening the impact of both experiences.
At each of our partner schools, at least 85% of students qualify for free and reduced lunch.

We know that we don't exist in a vacuum--in fact, we're lucky to share the Twin Cities with many incredible non-profits that share our overarching goal of inspiring youth to succeed. We work with many of these groups in a variety of capacities, from hosting joint events to sending our students on retreats.
