The Aspen Leadership Group is proud to partner with Junior Tennis Champions Center in the search for a Director of Development.

Reporting to the Chief Executive Officer, the Chief Development Officer will serve as the chief fundraising officer for Junior Tennis Champions Center (JTCC), maximizing contributed revenue from individuals, government entities, foundations, and corporate sponsors. The Chief Development Officer will provide oversight of JTCC's key annual fundraising campaigns including the GEICO Champions Celebration Gala and the US Open Fundraiser as well as JTCC’s $8M Capital Campaign.

JTCC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides tennis programs for all ages and abilities in the Washington, D.C. region. Through its program offerings based in College Park, Maryland, student-athletes learn valuable life skills and train with the goal of achieving a college tennis scholarship. JTCC’s community impact initiatives provide adaptive tennis programs at their facility which include Wheelchair, Special Olympics, and Veteran programs, as well as free tennis instruction and academic enrichment for youth in underserved areas of the District and Prince George’s County. JTCC also offers a fully developed adult tennis pathway that includes a unique beginner program designed to grow the base of the sport. Together, these high performing programs support JTCC’s goal of transforming lives through tennis. 

JTCC School emphasizes academic excellence and character development for its students and has utilized the Laurel Springs School online curriculum for over 18 years. Laurel Springs’ collegiate track is accredited by the NCAA and provides students with the flexibility required to train and compete at the highest levels of junior tennis while ensuring that everyone who graduates is fully prepared for college. JTCC graduates are ready for the demands of playing top collegiate tennis while pursuing their education at a wide range of leading colleges and universities across the United States.

JTCC underscores its commitment to growing the sport of tennis through its community outreach programs by providing free tennis instruction to underserved youth, military veterans, Special Olympians, and adaptive athletes. This important initiative promotes health and wellness and encourages personal growth through sportsmanship, competitive spirit, independence, and teamwork—opening doors to future success. With a unique mentorship model in place, JTCC's players and coaches commit to community-centric mentoring each year to both maintain and strengthen the bonds and friendships between the organization and its special communities.

A milestone in its impressive history, in 2008, JTCC was selected by the United States Tennis Association (USTA) as the first Regional Training Center, and subsequently named the USTA Developmental Program of the Year in 2013 and 2017. Notably, JTCC highlights its relationships with recognized tennis stars of all backgrounds and abilities in conversations about advancing the sport of tennis and demonstrating resilience throughout all facets of life. Most recently, JTCC interviewed the #1-ranked female professional wheelchair tennis player in the nation and two-time Paralympian, Dana Mathewson about how impactful representation and role models have been to her perception of her own ability.
