It was another exciting and successful year at SQB Lawrence.
SQB Providence completed it's first full year of operations with lots of great academics, squash, and community service activities.
In its very first year, SquashBusters Providence is already having a powerful impact in the city. With strong partners by its side, the program is serving nearly 30 students with a plan to eventually serve 110.
Halfway through the 2017-2018 program year, SquashBusters keeps going and growing. A brand-new team of Providence sixth-graders signs on, the Posse Foundation selects an SQB senior for the third year in a row, and Boston's varsity team heads down to Philly for their first-ever high school nationals. Meanwhile, the Derby's just around the corner!
On February 10, SquashBusters Providence officially welcomed its first team of sixth-graders into the SQB community. Check out the Providence Journal's coverage of the exciting event!
Year 22 shines especially bright for SquashBusters. We welcome 50 new 6th and 7th grade Boston and Lawrence students, elevate squash to official varsity status, and realize our Providence dream.
The SquashBusters story is one of community. We are excited to share with you our 2016-2017 Impact Report, so you can meet the students, alumni, volunteers and supporters who make the SquashBusters community a truly special one.
SquashBusters continues to expand its impact well beyond Boston and Lawrence, and setting down roots in Providence is only part of that story. SquashBusters students and alumni are making incredible journeys - many of them international. With an alum heading to Thailand as a Fulbright Scholar, two recent grads traveling to Africa and one current student giving back in Costa Rica, the program's reach is truly worldwide.
