Rodney Street Tennis and Tutoring Association (RSTTA), a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization founded in 1979 as a USTA NJTL Chapter, provides innovative tennis and educational enrichment programs to over 300 at-risk youth in the City of Wilmington, Delaware.
RSTTA’s mission is building lives through tennis and education.
RSTTA (www.rodneystreettennis.org) provides year round, after-school and out-of-school programs that are designed to combat pressing community concerns: truancy; poor academic achievement contributing to an alarmingly low graduation rate; gang activity; drug and alcohol dependency; and unhealthy lifestyles. The RSTTA curriculum supports both the personal development of the “whole” child as well as the communal development of the neighborhoods in which these children live and play. As an adjunct to its youth enrichment programs, RSTTA provides adult family members of its participants with the opportunity to receive training and tutoring for GED certification and/or college readiness. RSTTA’s principal sponsor is the Comcast Family of Companies. Additional support comes from foundations, corporate, public and private resources.
