Mission Squash of Houston
Mission Squash is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit in Houston, TX that supports underserved youth grades 6-12.
Founded in 2012, Mission Squash is dedicated to improving the lives of Houston’s economically disadvantaged youth through the formula of Urban Squash . Born 20 years ago at Harvard University, Urban Squash programs work throughout North America to provide students with tutoring, enrichment, mentoring, and community service to help underserved children stay in school, graduate, and matriculate to college, while at the same time improving their health and fitness.
Mission Squash is unique among the other 25 Urban Squash programs in that it has built a squash facility inside a school, giving unparalleled access to facilities for the school’s population which is 81% economically disadvantaged. The facility includes 3 international squash courts, which are the first squash courts built inside a public school in the whole of North America, and a purpose-built study room and office.
The program is privately funded by individuals, trusts and foundations.
