HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Volunteering for VAV is a rewarding experience! Come join us some Friday evening!

DESCRIPTION

This experience involves our partnership with the Boston Police Department - Volley Against Violence (VAV) - that engages inner city youth in tennis while providing intentional mentoring, life skills training and educational experiences for youth ages 5-18. The youth come together from all throughout Boston on Friday evenings to learn and play tennis with Boston Police officers and Sportsmen's coaches. Volunteers will engage with the younger participants in skills building tennis activities. Volunteers DO NOT need to know how to play tennis for this activity, but sneakers are required. VAV is held on Friday evenings from 6pm to 8pm.


ITEMS NEEDED

Sneakers must be worn


SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

Middle or High School students, NO tennis skills needed!
