StreetSquash offers youth enrichment programs throughout the year for children and young people from Harlem. The primary components of StreetSquash are Academic Instruction, Squash Instruction, Mentoring, College Preparation, and Community Service. Streetsquash provides these services through 4 programs, year-round.
The After School Program is StreetSquash’s core program, and serves more than 150 children annually in 6th-12th grade, from 4 partner schools. Each team has approximately 30 students, evenly split between boys and girls in each grade. The goal is that students who join in middle school will commit to the program through college graduation, for up to 11 years. After School Program students attend 2 After-School Sessions, 1 session of Literacy Enrichment/College Prep, and 1 Saturday Session.
The College Access and Success Program is an extension of the After-School Program beginning in high school, and is mandatory for all participants beginning in 9th grade through college admission. Upon graduation from high school the program provides college counseling and support services through college graduation and beyond.
StreetSquash’s year round programs continue throughout the summer, in Harlem and beyond New York City. Programs include the Summer Discovery Program at the SL Green StreetSquash Center, and opportunities for travel, learning, and squash across the world for middle school, high school, and college students.
Daytime Physical Education classes for students attending Harlem elementary and public schools, involving physical fitness, games, and squash-based activities.
