Congrats to our 10 and Under Junior Tennis Team on winning their first match of the fall season!
Yesterday our Scholar Athletes welcomed a group of volunteers from the @kpmg Portland office to our after school program. Together the Scholar Athletes and volunteers developed skits about fall, worked on a collaborative art project and of course played tennis!
Our Scholar Athletes had a wonderful time getting to know our volunteers and showing off what PT&E is all about.
Thank you to everyone from KPMG who made this day possible. We hope to see you all soon!
The summer cohort of Passport Oregon wrapped up this weekend with a breathtaking trip to the Oregon Coast. The Scholar Athletes hiked and played at Oceanside beach where they explored tide pools, seeing sea creatures such as sea anemones and star fish, played frisbee, built rock towers and sun bathed along side a seal. After that they checked out the historic Cape Mears lighthouse and visited the new and improved Tillamook Cheese Factory. It was a great way to wrap up this round of Passport Oregon trips and we can’t wait to start them again this coming fall. We are thrilled to have taken 24 of our Scholar Athletes on Passport Oregon trips so far this year and look forward to helping facilitate more adventures this fall!
Aaaannnddd we are back!
After two weeks off from program to adjust to the new school year our Scholar Athletes returned on Tuesday! There were smiling faces all around as coaches and scholar athletes were reunited for the new year. We are excited to have kicked off the 2018-19 school year!

Another adventure filled weekend with @passportoregon as our scholar athletes explored the beautiful Silver Falls State Park.

The chimps toured @uportland last week & saw what it's like to be a college student. Gema & Esme already decided they want to be college roommates.

Alberto, who graduated from the Oregon Connections Academy this past June, received word that he is one of three West Coast recipients (and the ONLY Oregon recipient) of the Donald Lawson Tisdel College Scholarship of $10,000 through the USTA Foundation. Alberto will be able to put his scholarship towards his studies at Portland Community College this Fall where he plans to major in Graphic Design with a Minor in Spanish.
Also, as a recipient of the Oregon Opportunity Grant, Promise Grant, and Pell Grant, Alberto has both years at PCC covered, and will transfer to Portland State University to complete his Bachelors Degree.
Congratulations, Alberto! WE ARE SO PROUD OF YOU!
