The OBTA is an official National Junior Tennis Learning Center (NJTL). Outer Banks Tennis Association’s “Love to SERVE” Program is an innovative Education and Peer Mentoring Program that combines STEM lessons, science experiments, Arthur Ashe Ace Curriculum, math lessons, nutrition lessons, life skill lessons, and tennis lessons. The result is a fun interactive peer education model program that reaches youth of rural Northeast North Carolina.  The OBTA has also developed a peer mentoring program to provide leadership opportunities for youth in our community. The OBTA “Love to SERVE” Program is a Peer Tennis and Education program where older youth are trained as Peer Education Leaders to help younger youth learn about math and science outside the classroom, develop their tennis skills and positively influence their health behaviors. Peer Education Leaders also assist students in developing Life Skills, Cultural Competency Skills, and build Self Esteem and Confidence. The goal of the OBTA “Love to SERVE” Education and Peer Mentoring program is to make learning fun for our youth and to inspire them to become scientist, leaders, and live healthy lifestyles.
