Steel City Squash, Inc.
Steel City Squash is an academic and athletic youth development program that will provide life-changing opportunities to children from low-income families in Pittsburgh, PA through education, mentoring, community service, and the sport of squash. Launched in January 2015, Steel City Squash is based at the University of Pittsburgh currently serving middle school students. Each year Steel City Squash will welcome a new class of up to 15 students and by 2020, the organization will enroll over 100 elementary, middle and high school students.
Our intensive, year-round programming will last up to 10 years for each participant, with the goal that our students will: (1) graduate from high school, (2) enroll and succeed in college, (3) become competitive squash players, and (4) develop professional skills.
