Charlie's Foundation is a Canadian and Dominican non-profit organization that teaches Dominican youth the English language, connecting them with the wider world and improving their future career prospects. Our method combines English lessons with tennis instruction, because we believe in the power of sport to motivate, challenge and inspire.

Charlie's Foundation is dedicated to expanding opportunities for the children of the Dominican Republic. By supplementing an underfunded and overcrowded education system, we teach Dominican youth the English language, connecting them with the wider world and improving their future career prospects. Our method combines English lessons with tennis instruction, because we believe in the power of sport to motivate, challenge and inspire.

Currently in the Dominican Republic, a lack of educational and vocational opportunities have led many local families to struggle with economic hardship and a continued cycle of poverty. As a result, youth are unable to envision a different, more successful, future for themselves. Low standards of education and high unemployment have trapped too many in a cycle of poverty. Our solution is to empower the nation's young by giving them both an education and a sense of their own potential. And in a country dependent on tourism, a basic command of the English language is a passport to a better life.

The Foundation uses tennis as a method to achieve our goals, and it's about more than just making our students smile. We believe that the skills they learn on the court - the discipline and commitment to improvement - translate into the classroom. Similarly, tennis instruction helps reinforce the day's language lessons in a fun and engaging environment, and encourages youth to use conversational English. Even more, it provides another motivating factor for regular attendance. Through careful instruction on the court and in the classroom, they'll gain the skills they need to succeed in life and help transform their community.
