About Recreation Wish List Committee

For 25 years, the Recreation Wish List Committee has strived to improve the quality of life and access to opportunities for children. RWLC’s work began with ensuring that recreation centers around Washington, DC—Bald Eagle, Benning Stoddart, and Chevy Chase were welcoming spaces with adequate equipment to provide a wide range of activities for children to experience. RWLC has since focused its efforts in one of the most historically under-resourced communities in the City. The need was great. The Southeast Tennis and Learning Center grew out of that work, and the rest is history.
