Unique time exchange in the Austin neighborhood of Chicago, 2015

Barry Koren

They were warm summer days In the Austin neighborhood of the Chicago west side.

Circle Urban Ministries- Afterschool program wanted to introduce tennis to 14 of their kids.

Each parent or guardian "paid" 2 hours of time for their child to participate in the program. 14 children times 2 hours gave us 28 hours to pay the three tennis coaches.

The kids were delighted, the staff thought the tennis program was great. I was an assistant tennis coach and had a blast. It was a bit like having 14 grandkids.
