Throughout the years, MTEF has served over 32,000 Milwaukee children who otherwise would lack a safe, productive, and healthy after-school and summer environment. Our high quality literacy and tennis programming not only builds academic skills and improves fitness but also emphasizes First Serve Life Skills development, which instills the confidence needed to succeed in school and in life.
