On Monday, October 5, Breakthrough New York held the first day of its after-school program at the new Cary Leeds Center for Tennis & Learning. The program, which is a ten-year college access program that also includes summer school, mentoring, college visits and test prep, can now increase the number of Bronx students it serves because of the new space.
