Mission Statement

SquashWise Mission Statement

Baltimore SquashWise is a nonprofit organization providing middle school students from Baltimore City with a safe and structured place to exercise their bodies and minds during the afterschool hours. We combine squash instruction, academic tutoring, mentoring and community service to empower local youth to excel academically, athletically and in life.

Description

We hold daily squash and academic sessions for forty middle school students from Baltimore City.

Baltimore SquashWise aims to:

• Use squash as the "hook" to teach sportsmanship and respect for volunteers, fellow students, opponents and oneself.

• Surround students with academic tutors, coaches and positive role models to encourage all students to reach for their potential.

• Create a safe, fun and constructive afterschool environment for highly motivated youth from an underserved community.

• Ensure high school graduation and community service involvement.
