As an InnerCity Tennis volunteer, you will be actively engaged in bettering the lives of the 6,000+ children we serve every year. We are not asking you to shape young children into tennis stars; rather we are asking you to help shape young leaders. We seek coaches that can model core values such as responsibility, integrity, teamwork and perseverance. One role model can make all the difference in shaping a young person’s mind! 

We work with 250 volunteers of all ages who support staff in delivering programming to children, both on site at our Super Saturdays program and in the community throughout the week. The intergenerational relationships forged between volunteers and our youth participants are integral to the success of our programming. 
 


 


SUPER SATURDAYS
Our greatest need for volunteers is our Super Saturdays program, which runs from 3:30-5:00 pm (ages 3-11) and 5:00-6:30 pm (ages 12-17). Each week, volunteers help deliver programming to 250 kids. No tennis experience is necessary for the early group, but volunteers must be able to feed with a racket to work with the older group.
