Mission Squash is a Houston nonprofit that empowers children from underserved communities to activate their true academic, physical, and personal potential, and to achieve their dream of a college education.
By combining intensive academic tutoring, mentoring, travel, and college support with training in the elite sport of squash, we equip students with the tools they need to transcend socioeconomic boundaries, stay in school, graduate and succeed in college.
Mission Squash follows a proven urban youth development model to provide after school academic support for at-risk youth in Houston. It uses the sport of squash as the hook to keep students engaged with the program year after year, offering 100 hours of squash training along with 100 hours of academic tutoring per year. This focus on academics combined with a unique extracurricular program makes participants ideal candidates for sought-after universities.
The program provides students with a safe, supervised place outside of school hours, keeping them focused on their future. It gives them the skills and confidence to help them achieve great things through hard work.
