Mission Statement

Seattle Tennis and Education Foundation is a non-profit that inspires under-resourced kids to be active in mind and body so they gain the confidence and skills to achieve their dreams.


At STEF, we are not only looking to introduce kids to a lifelong love of tennis, but to tap into their critical thinking, curiosity, and creativity! Our program aims to keep kids physically active by getting them off of screens and on to the tennis court. While tennis is our main focus, we also center around positivity, community, and participation both on and off the court. Social and emotional learning and wellbeing is a key component in working with youth and we take time each week to highlight different topics such as honesty, communication, and sportsmanship.

In the classroom, we continue to spark interest and discover new ways of learning together. We aim to enrich the lives of our participants by offering new and fun activities that challenge all ages. Our academic and enrichment side of programming involves art, STEM, reading, writing, and more! Our goal is to expose our kids to as many new experiences as possible and help them find their own passions and interests.

Through offering a free program, we provide access to a sport, unique learning experiences, and critical social and emotional resources to kids and families who otherwise would be unable to afford it. Our core programming at STEF is also not duplicated by another agency, school, or organization within the served community.
