Daily Programs


TNT - Tennis and Tutoring

Grades K-5

Daily After-School Program: Monday-Friday 3pm-6pm

Our TnT program consists of Kindergarten through 5th grade students. These students receive daily academic support through daily homework assistance, small group tutoring sessions and mentors. We use internal pre and post assessments to track our student’s progress over the school year and assist us in recognizing students who are below grade level so we can provide additional support as needed.

Aside from academic support, the students take part in a variety of other activities including being introduced to the sport of tennis and participating in weekly enrichment lessons. These lessons are geared towards using STEAM, Literacy, Math, and Art to teach the students how to use Communication, Teamwork, Problem Solving and Creativity.

All students receive a nutritious snack daily and participate in community service activities.



Grades 6-12

Students who complete the TnT elementary program have the opportunity to join the Leadership program.

The Leadership Program is for middle and high school students and provides them with a hands-on, engaging curriculum, study hall for homework, college tours, and career exploration. Middle school students have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of electives including technology club, creative expression art club, cooking club, and sports club. High school students who have a 3.0 GPA or higher are eligible to take part in our Leaders in Training program where they work part-time in administrative or teaching assistant positions. Those who complete service projects, educational projects, and social projects throughout the year are also eligible to attend fun outings like going to the movies, bowling, or eating out!

Family Services

Family support is key to the success of the students in the MaliVai Washington Youth Foundation. Therefore, family involvement is mandatory. Each family is required to provide six hours of community service each year by an adult.

In addition, quarterly family nights are held each year with a mandatory attendance policy.  Family nights focus on topics that parents request such as home ownership and credit repair, how to help your child succeed in school, internet safety, and community violence.
