Through the discipline of tennis the Israel Tennis & Education Centers strive to improve the lives of children in one of the most conflicted regions of the world. By teaching the life skills of self-reliance, perseverance and focus, the ITEC fosters sustainable values of self-esteem, character and tolerance, creating a positive imprint on the children, their families, the communities and the world for generations to come.
Founded in 1976, the Israel Tennis & Education Centers (ITEC) is one of the largest social service organizations for children in Israel, serving over 20,000 Israeli children every year. The ITEC’s 17 centers stretch from Kiryat Shmona in the North to Beer Sheva in the South. Many of these centers are in underprivileged neighborhoods, providing disadvantaged children with a safe, structured and nurturing environment.
