It’s hard to believe that squash, a sport that plenty of people haven’t even heard of, has so many non-profit organizations surrounding it. We’ve already featured New York’s StreetSquash and San Diego’s Surf City Squash, both members of the National Urban Squash and Education Association (NUSEA), and today we’re going to take a look at another member of the association, Boston’s SquashBusters. They are very similar to the other organizations that I’ve just mentioned in that they combine “squash with intensive academic tutoring, community service, and one-to-one mentoring to help student-athletes strive towards excellence in their lives.” SquashBusters works with about 100 ethnically diverse Boston public school youth and uses an apparently awesome facility on Northeastern University’s campus.

Unemployment Busters

SquashBusters has five key goals that they believe will help them achieve their mission “to challenge and nurture urban youth so that they recognize and fulfill their potential.”

  • to teach students to take responsibility for their actions and choices
  • to provide active educational experiences that motivate students to engage deeply with the learning process
  • to help students demonstrate good sportsmanship on and off the squash court
  • to promote understanding and friendships between people of different backgrounds
  • to engage students in service projects which help people and promote a commitment to the community

Whether you’re a squash player or not, you have to love what SquashBusters is doing. You also have to love the fact that SquashBusters is hiring. Even though their Jobs page says that they aren’t, there’s a job posting on Idealist for an Academic and Community Service Coordinator. It seems perfect for a new or recent grad, and there’s no requirement that you have played squash or received a teaching certificate. The job sounds great, and you can apply by sending a cover letter and résumé to SquashBuster’s Managing Director, Dominique Farinaux-Dumas, at d.farinaux-dumas@squashbusters.org.
