Harlem Junior Tennis & Education Program
RISE brought its leadership program to about 30 middle and high school student-athletes at the Harlem Junior Tennis & Education Program (HJTEP) annual summer camp at Fordham University in 2017.
The student-athletes participated in weekly one-hour RISE activities over six weeks as part of their regular training with HJTEP. They learned about the value of diversity and inclusion and built socio-emotional skills that will allow them to become leaders within their communities.
The subjects of the six RISE modules included:
- Leadership and empowerment
- Conflict resolution
- Critical thinking
