Our Program

SquashDrive is a long-term, in-depth program that operates around three central pillars: academics, squash & wellness, and character development.

 
 
 

Daily after school academic support

 

Students receive a balance of tutoring and academic enrichment. SquashDrive partners with UC Berkeley and members of the Bay Area business and volunteer communities to deliver 115 hours of homework help (in addition to the academic enrichment, squash and character programming they receive) each year.

Squash instruction and wellness education.
