What is Urban Squash Cleveland?
Urban Squash Cleveland is a youth development organization that transforms the lives of inner-city youth through academic support, the sport of squash and enduring life skills.
This fascinating sport provides students with the opportunity of staying healthy, and developing all of the invaluable skills and values that squash requires, including endurance, coordination, physical and mental awareness, hard work and discipline.
Through homework help, academic tutoring, supplemental work, speakers, field trips, and supplemental lessons, USC aids students in achieving at or above state guidelines and works to inspire a lifelong love of learning.
USC works to prepare students for the future. Students engage in community service, health and wellness programming, and overnight trips. Takeaways include pathways to better health, an understanding and desire to give back to their community, self-confidence, team bonding, and benefits of experiential learning.
