HERO's 2018 HEAD START ADAPTED TENNIS INITIATIVE

 

In 2018, HERO will be serving 448 pre-schoolers at 7 HEAD START Centers in Westchester County. They are the Lois Bronz Center (Greenburgh), Mt. Vernon, Port Chester, Mamaroneck, St. Peters (Yonkers), Andrus (Tuckahoe) and Yonkers Children's Place. Many of these tots are at-risk and some are developmentally delayed or disabled.

HERO's goals are:

  1. Enhanced listening skills
  2. ability to follow directions
  3. cooperation with peers
  4. abiding by the rules
  5. improved language skills
  6. recognizing shapes, sizes, colors and textures
  7. gaining knowledge of basic tennis skills

and most of all, having lots of fun!

Because HEAD START is grossly underfunded, HERO will not only organize and run each program, but also raise funds for all the sites. We would be grateful for any support you can provide.
