SquashWise is a long-term support system creating opportunities for aspiring youth in Baltimore. We help students realize their academic, athletic, and personal potential by combining intensive academic tutoring and mentoring with coaching in the sport of squash. We are based on the very successful model of squash & education programs located in 20 cities across the country. www.baltimoresquashwise.org.
Described by many students and staff as “a second home,” SquashWise creates an athletic self-concept in students who may not have considered themselves athletes, and we introduce students to incredible educational and life opportunities through squash. Our staff team is deeply committed to our students, which is the number one reason why our staff retention is so high (ranging from 1-10 years, averaging 5 years).
