Lobs & Lessons began in the fall of 2004 with the mission of reaching out to underserved youth in our community by focusing on life skill lessons and the sport of tennis. With corporate support and a partnership with Virginia Commonwealth University, Lobs & Lessons has reached more than 500 children by offering an after-school and summer enrichment program. Virginia Commonwealth University and NBC-12 teamed up to create the series called "It's VCU" to showcase this urban university, located in the heart of Richmond. VCUs diverse students, faculty and programs, superior teaching, steady growth and groundbreaking research are shaping Richmond, the state and the region.
