CitySquash is a not-for-profit after-school enrichment program based in the Bronx at Fordham University and in Brooklyn at Poly Prep. The organization helps motivated and talented young people from economically disadvantaged households fulfill their academic, athletic and personal potential.
Founded in 2002, CitySquash serves 175 elementary, middle, high school and college students. For our participants, CitySquash is an intensive, year-round commitment that includes squash, tutoring, mentoring, community service, travel, culture, high school placement, college prep, and career support. CitySquash begins working with students in third grade and serves them through college graduation.
EWB Fordham has teamed up with CitySquash to provide extracurricular science enrichment to students in the Bronx community. Participants are exposed to fun and educational experiments that teach principles of physics, chemistry, and biology in a hands-on way.
