July saw the induction of Steel City Squash into the NUSEA network. Founded in 2014 and led by Executive Director Brad Young, the Pittsburgh-based program currently has 35 4th-6th grade students enrolled from partner schools Miller African-Centered Academy, St. Benedict the Moor School, and Pittsburgh Science & Technology Academy. The after-school programming runs out of the University of Pittsburgh and is off to a strong start. They have connected with other programs in the NUSEA network, setting up friendly matches and even attending NUSEA’s Urban Individual Nationals and Midwest Championships this summer. “My philosophy is that while the amazing experiences NUSEA provides are expensive, the experiences are worth it a hundred times over,” said Young.
