Stephen Cammarota and Julia Friedenberg decided to take their love and tennis and match it with their love of helping others. They both wanted to work with special needs kids and adults and teach them tennis.
Their tennis clinic meets for an 8-week session, Saturdays, at Montgomery County Community College tennis courts from 12-1pm.
The sessions are hard work and the rewards are plentiful as Julia and Stephen are both reporting how happy the participants feel when they arrive each week. Over 15 athletes have signed up!
Participants and Volunteers, please RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also check out their facebook page.
Their goal is to continue this program year after year. Stephen will graduate and pass his project on to another high school senior.
Stephen will work on this program as his high school senior project while Julia works on it as her mitzvah project.
A local newspaper published an article about their project.
