Arthur Ashe Educational Guidance Program
Inspired by the example of Arthur Ashe and supported by generous donors and corporate partners, NYJTL nurtures young people’s dreams. Every one of our kids deserves to achieve something great—whether in tennis, in school, or beyond. With your help, we give them—and their families—the support they need to reach their potential.
Arthur Ashe Educational Guidance supports young people by providing:
• Summer reading clubs to combat the “summer slide” in literacy among students from low-income neighborhoods
• A comprehensive character education program that emphasizes trustworthiness, respect, and fairness
• Admissions and financial aid counseling to help with transitions into middle school, into high school, and then into college
• Step In and Follow Through, a guidance program including high school and college test prep, math and literacy tutoring, job readiness training, college visits, and more
Program participants also can apply for college scholarships sponsored by NYJTL.
