Tenacity offers a unique blend of intensive literacy, life skills development, family engagement, and tennis/fitness instruction to Boston's at-risk youth. During the school year, our comprehensive programs serve youth from as early as 4th grade through post-secondary completion through our Pathway to Post-Secondary Success. By staying with youth for over a decade of their lives, we equip them with essential academic skills, and then support them with resources and guidance as they progress through high school and college. With a sustained annual high school graduation rate of 95% among the students we serve, Tenacity has raised the bar for our impact community to ensuring that students coming from high support Boston Public Schools attend and complete college and other post-secondary programs. To date, 75% of Tenacity's high school graduates are either currently enrolled or have completed a post-secondary program. Tenacity's Next Chapter service growth plan aims to propel more youth through an enhanced and deepened Pathway all the way through the completion of college.
