Program Model

SEA programs follow an intensive, year-round youth development model, known as “urban squash,” that combines squash instruction, academic tutoring, mentoring, travel, college prep and support, and more. We work year-round with students from underserved communities, beginning in elementary or middle school and extending all the way through college graduation. Students attend practices and tutoring sessions three or four days a week during the school year, and for much of the summer. Students regularly volunteer in their communities, and travel to colleges and cities around the country. Key areas of focus include:

Education: We enable students to prepare for and graduate from college.

Health & Wellness: We help students maintain good health and physical fitness.

Community: We provide students with opportunities to serve the community and travel outside of it.

Career: We assist students in preparing for post-graduation employment.
