Squash Urbano Brasil
Squash Urbano Brasil is a nonprofit youth development organization committed to improving the lives of children from low-income neighborhoods in Sao Paulo through squash and academic enrichment programming. Following the model of the National Urban Squash and Education Association, the program will provide students with squash instruction and academic support geared towards graduating high school and attending college. The program will open its doors to 40 students in 2016, and looks for your support in creating the best program possible for its students.
