Adam Slone, founder of Slone Partners, has overseen the recruitment of thousands of professionals into the medical diagnostics and laboratory testing industries since the company’s creation in 2000. This summer Adam launched a brand new recruitment effort, the country’s first sleepaway tennis camp for underserved youth.
Life Serve Youth Foundation, a nonprofit organization based in New York City, offers the first overnight tennis camp in the United States that provides exceptional training and personal development opportunities for youth with limited financial resources.
The foundation offers a free 14-day overnight tennis camp for kids 12 to 17 with a demonstrated potential for tennis. Camps will focus on children from New York City, Boston, the Albany Capital Region, and the rural areas in between who otherwise may have few opportunities to participate in intensive sports training or attend a sleepaway camp.
“Every company looking for talent, no matter the industry, has a short list of qualities it’s looking for, and at the top is always team player—can the candidate build a team, play on a team, lead the team, make the team proud? Sports are a surefire way to acquire team skills.”
“World-class tennis instruction, talented youth, and high expectations are our formula for success. Our goal is for kids to build up enough internal resources,” states Adam, “to not just become strong, personally, but to experience a new world in which they can accomplish whatever they put their minds to.”
Leadership training, cooking classes, farm visits, a nutrition course, environmental awareness activities, recreation, and life skills instruction complement the tennis training.
The inaugural camp was successfully held on August 11-25, 2016. The foundation partnered with Camp Eagle Hill, an American Camp Association-accredited facility situated in the foothills of the Berkshire Mountains, 90 miles north of New York City in Elizaville, N.Y.
“Our camp was delighted to achieve its goals during our first year. The kids and all involved had a truly transformative experience. We are already excited about the 2017 camp,” says Adam Slone, Founder of Life Serve Youth Foundation.
