Youth Tennis Advantage
March 3, 2011

I have been a volunteer for this Beartrax program for three weeks tutoring spanish and math. The value of this program is monumental. Every week I see kids coming in eager to learn who intelligent and earnest. With the help of the volunteers they gain more confidence in their skills, and learn to control their attention and focus on the work at hand so that they can practice the tennis that they look forward to so much.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've witnessed the spanish vocabulary and verb comprehension of these students grow every time they participate in the program.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Recruit more volunteers with more specialized areas of tutoring, particularly spanish as there are more children in spanish immersion programs than there are volunteers who can converse with them in spanish.

MY ROLE:
Volunteer & Tutored elementary school kids in spanish and math.
