Volunteer

StreetSquash needs volunteers!

Are you motivated, high energy, patient, and committed to making a difference in the lives of young people? You don’t have to be a squash player to volunteer at StreetSquash, and you can even get lessons from our students if you want to give it a try.

We are looking for volunteers in Harlem and New Jersey:

  • Tutors: work with 1-2 students during after-school and Saturday homework sessions. Volunteers are needed for all subject areas from 6th grade Math to 12th grade AP Chemistry.
  • Squash Coaches: join StreetSquash students on courts for basic drills, training, and games. Squash players of all levels are needed at after-school and Saturday sessions.
  • Mentors: work one on one with a StreetSquash student throughout the school year and have a direct impact on the life of a young person. Email RJ for more information.
  • Corporate Partners: StreetSquash partners with corporations in New York City and New Jersey for group volunteer outings, office visits, and a range of corporate support. Email Liz for more information.

The best thing about becoming a StreetSquash volunteer is meeting great young people and making a difference in their lives – whether you can make it once a week or once in awhile, we encourage you to get involved.

Please fill out a volunteer application for Harlem or Newark or contact volunteer@streetsquash.org with any questions. In Harlem, volunteer orientations are the first Tuesday of every month: Tuesday October 7th, 6:15 – 7:30, Tuesday November 4th, 6:15 – 7:30, Tuesday December 2nd, 6:15 – 7:30.
