Welcome to the Board, Staff and Volunteer Team.
We know you have many options to support our community and are very grateful that your are considering Beyond Walls this year. All of us are involved with Beyond Walls because we believe in the mission: To inspire confidence and academic excellence with urban youth as life-long learners and active leaders – both on, and off, the court.
Our program provides a year-round scholar/athlete approach to youth development for 6th-12th grade students that leads to:
• Positive connections with peers
• Social and emotional competencies
• Future post-secondary aspirations
Using squash, academics, mentoring and life skills development, Beyond Walls supports students in finding and graduating from their best-fit post-secondary pursuit. Our pathway approach fosters a strong community of support and meaningful relationships that blossom over a period of years and nationally has yielded a 100% high school graduation rate, 99% enter into college, 83% earned their B.A. degree and 14% earned their A.A. degree.
Each week, students dedicate 9 hours of out-of-school time to learn the fast-paced game of squash, improve their academic performance, plan and lead community engagement projects and participate in the Beyond Walls mentor program. If you’d like to see the program in action, please click on the short video above. Thank you again for considering Beyond Walls – we hope you will join us in supporting this very important work.
