SquashBusters was founded in 1996 as the first after-school program of its kind in the United States - combining squash, academics, and community service. The organizationÃ¢??s aim was to serve students from Boston and Cambridge Public Schools through the most crucial years of their development, with the goals of building strong personal character, ensuring that students matriculate to and graduate from college, and improving the overall physical and emotional health of our students. The program serves 265 Boston and Lawrence middle, high school and college-aged students.
"SquashBusters made the college application process easy because I received individual attention. I like the fact that the college process was built right into the program so that I could come work and ask questions. The staff knows me so well and gave me the support I needed." --Paulo DaMoura, Boston University Ã¢??16
