Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Children & Youth, Youth Development Programs

Mission: To provide opportunities for underprivileged youth to excel through a program combining academics, the sport of squash and community service.

Programs: We use the sport of squash as a catalyst to transform young lives. By building on our highly successful preuss pilot program and in partnership with hoover high school and hoover cluster middle schools, we have created a program that begins by selecting children in the 7th grade, educating them with our four pillars and continuing to transform their lives for six years through high school graduation. During these fundamental years, we provide guidance for building essential life skills to becoming responsible and honorable adults. By creating a culture of healthy lifestyle and exercise, students find the discipline and dedication to unlock their potential and achieve their goals. Family members are involved in the transformation process, as these skills translate to all members of a family and ultimately a community.
