We provide educational opportunities to urban squash students across the country, most often in the summer. Opportunities include:
Summer School Partnerships
10 urban squash students participate in Phillip Exeter Academy’s rigorous 5-week summer academic program in Exeter, New Hampshire.
8 urban squash students participate in the Taft School’s 5-week summer school experience in Watertown, Connecticut.

4 female urban squash students participate in Miss Porter’s School’s 3-week summer program in Farmington, Connecticut. Miss Porter’s summer program is broken into three segments: Leadership, STEAM – a mixture of STEM and Art – and Financial Literacy.
Urban Squash Citizenship Tour
NUSEA selects 22 high school and college students each summer to participate in the Citizenship Tour, an 8-day academic and athletic trip from New York City to Washington DC with a stop in Philadelphia. The Citizenship Tour seeks to inspire students across the country to be civically engaged, to become informed citizens and to highlight the importance of public service within the country’s urban squash programs. Highlights of previous Tours include meetings with Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, Former MA Governor Deval Patrick, Senator Al Franken , Congressman Elijah Cummings, and Congressman John Lewis and tours of the New York Times Building, Capitol Building, White House and Independence Hall.
