SquashBusters is a sports-based after-school youth enrichment program located in Boston and Lawrence, Massachusetts. We use the sport of squash, in combination with academic enrichment / homework tutoring, community service, school counseling and placement, and summer opportunities to improve the lives of Boston and Lawrence youth. SquashBusters has served more than 500 young people since its 1996 inception. SquashBusters aims to ensure that all its students graduate from high school, and matriculate to and graduate from college. By doing so, its students grow to become healthy, civic-minded, educated adults. We transform the lives of our students and the communities in which they live.

2015 June Update

SquashBusters has just wrapped up its 19th year of programming, and what a year it was. Highlights include our biggest and best Derby ever, college acceptances for all 10 of our graduating seniors, strong student performance on and off the squash court, and the introduction of 6th grade programming in Boston. In September, a new cohort of 7th graders will join the family in Boston and the Lawrence program will grow to serve students in 6th through 10th grade. None of this would be possible without our incredible network of supporters. We are beyond excited to celebrate our 20th anniversary next year!  Read more...

MashUp - SqB Site 1

2014 December Update

During this holiday season, SquashBusters has much to be thankful for. Our program has touched the lives of thousands of people, young and old. Our youngest participants are 11 years old and our most senior alumni are 32 years old – the same age that Greg was when SQB was founded. Nearly 20 years of success with Boston youth is now translating itself into our wildly popular and expanding Lawrence program. The National Urban Squash and Education Association (NUSEA) is throwing an NYC bash, in celebration of our two decades and the expansion of the SQB model to 17 other cities. Closer to home, we're proud to welcome our newest 47 family members – 33 Boston 7th graders and 14 Lawrence 6th graders. Last but surely not least, two major Quilos (SQB word for Shout Out): to our Boston HS Ambassadors who have taken hold of the leadership reigns and made the program stronger and to all MashUp players and supporters who contributed just under $200,000 to support SQB Lawrence. Thank you!  Read more...
