It is clear to me that SquashSmarts has brought an innovative, useful, and needed program to young people in the inner city. SS does not serve only Hunting Park children -- I tutored one bright young girl, Tatiana, who came all the way from West Philly, taking a few different forms of public transportation to get to the Lenfest Center. Few children in the city have space to play sports other than b-ball; SS introduces a new, very competitive sport that the children and teens seem particularly suited for. And of course, the staff I worked with were all dedicated and personable -- but firm when they had to be. SS is a community program with a positive impact that is well worth supporting
