Company description: Founded in April 2006, Access Youth Academy is an after-school youth enrichment program that combines academic tutoring with squash instruction five days a week. In the 2010-2011 season, the program will work with 40 students from The Preuss School, a charter school at UCSD campus. Weekend activities include community service events, squash competitions and cultural outings.

All Access Youth Academy students qualify for the federal government’s Free Lunch program and have little access to positive role models or after school programming. Our primary goals include: elevating grades and test scores; developing competitive squash players; supporting students in attending college; and promoting sportsmanship and fair play.
