SquashBusters runs on the power of its dedicated volunteers, who generously donate time to helping our students on court and in the classroom.
Academic volunteers commit to spending one afternoon per week at the SQB facility, providing homework support to students or helping with SAT prep, resume-writing, and other enrichment activities.
Homework Help: Whether you’re great at editing essays, solving math problems, or preparing for tests, you’ll be a big help during our daily homework sessions.
Academic Enrichment: High school students participate in weekly enrichment sessions to prepare them for college and careers. In these sessions, you’ll help students write resumes, prepare for the SAT, explore various careers, apply for summer jobs, and more.
Contact Eileen Barrer if you are interested in volunteering with our Boston academic sessions.
Squash volunteers can volunteer on a weekly basis, or can drop in at Saturday practices on an individual basis.
If you’re a dedicated, energetic squash enthusiast, we need you on court! Squash volunteers engage with and encourage middle school and high school students as they learn and improve at the game. They also help execute lesson plans designed by the squash coaches. You will enjoy yourself, see the impact you are having on others, and build a close connection to our players.
Contact Nessrine Ariffin if you are interested in volunteering at Boston squash practice.

IN THE WORDS OF OUR VOLUNTEERS
“What’s most rewarding is seeing kids come back as alumni. They have turned into confident, warm, friendly adults on an upward trajectory toward success.”
“It is not easy growing up. For those of us who have done it, we can offer help to kids working to get through some very challenging years. Few things in life can be more rewarding than a teenager thanking you for your help and effort. And with a very big smile!”
