06 Sep Love, Love Compton
Love, Love Compton is our flagship program. It provides the at-risk youth of Compton with the opportunity to play and learn. We provide assistance on and off the tennis court with both tennis coaching and academic tutoring in 25 schools throughout Compton. We provide nets, racquets, balls and safe footwear, removing the barriers to entry in what can be an expensive sport. We’ve also built and refurbished 50 tennis and mini-tennis courts giving the youth of Compton more spaces to play safely.
In the classroom, we work hand in hand with the Compton Unified School District. The schools provide 40 teachers to tutor students in our program and allow them to achieve both on and off the court.
In a community where 61.7% of residents have a high-school degree and 8.1% have a college degree, 100% of students in the Love, Love Compton program have graduated high school and enrolled in a 2 or 4 year college.
