Charity:  Tenacity is a Boston-based youth development organization focused on closing the achievement and opportunity gaps for less-advantaged youth. From elementary school through college and beyond, Tenacity offers a unique Pathway combining literacy and life skills instruction, mentoring, family engagement, and tennis/fitness coaching that mitigates barriers to success, unlocks potential, and empowers participants. The youth served by Tenacity's Pathway programs develop positive identities as students, mentors, and leaders while mastering important academic, non-cognitive, college readiness, workforce readiness, and life skills. The effectiveness of Tenacity’s whole-child approach is evidenced by the achievements of Tenacity Pathway students: a 95% high school graduation rate and a 70% rate of current enrollment in, or graduation from, college or approved post-secondary programs.
