New HYTEs mission is to enrich the lives and positively affect the futures of New Haven's economically disadvantaged youth through a program that incorporates life skills curriculum and academic supports, and promotes both character building and the health benefits of participation in athletics through tennis.
Tennis, Education, and Mentoring (TEaM):
A partnership between Yale University Athletics Department and New HYTEs, our flagship enrichment program TEaM, brings underserved students from New Haven public schools to Yale’s Cullman-Heyman Tennis Center and the Connecticut Tennis Center for after-school tennis development, academic support, and mentorship.
By enhancing educational outcomes, increasing the adoption of positive choices, and improving health and fitness, TEaM promotes confidence and determination and uniquely equips students to succeed in both school and life.
TEaM Summer Academy:
An extension of TEaM’s tennis and education curriculum, our Summer Academy engages our youth in projects with a social focus. Students participate in a pioneering academic program which explores the community, the environment, civic engagement, and current events and is supplemented by multimedia projects and exciting field trips. Lessons emphasize teamwork, critical thinking, character-building, and communication. Students are also exposed to a daily regimen which includes tennis development, fitness, and meditation to promote physical and mental wellness.
Junior TEaM Tennis (JTT):
Our outlet for competitive tennis, JTT enables TEaM students to develop a deeper connection to tennis, promotes teamwork, camaraderie, and sportsmanship, and further enhances health and fitness.
New HYTEs Youth Physical Education Development (HYPED):
Our public schools initiative; we engage with elementary school students during their Physical Education sessions with early tennis development, this is our introduction to the sport of a lifetime and to our program. In Spring 2016 we serviced 364 students.
Tennis in the Neighborhood (TIN):
One of our two special summer programs, TIN provides students from targeted underserved neighborhoods with the opportunity to play tennis and receive life-skills training, mentoring, and literacy support while on break from school.

When families, schools and communities take the view that children and youth are valued and respected assets to society, they necessarily support environments that nurture youth development. Children raised to embrace positive social values, to seek self-understanding, and to value their self-worth grow to become community-minded young adults with a sense of belonging and a belief in their resiliency. See how you can help our community's children grow into tomorrow's leaders.
