716 Squash Looking for Volunteers

Posted by Tim on September 20, 2021 in Honors Experiences, Volunteering, Volunteers Needed

716 Squash is a long-term and intensive youth development organization. We empower youth in the city of Buffalo to reach their full potential by providing life-changing opportunities through education, mentoring, service, and the sport of squash. 

The main focus of our program is supporting our individual student’s academic needs. We are looking for volunteers to help our 6th-9th graders with their homework in various subjects. Volunteers work with 1-3 students with guidance from our Director of Education, Sarah. 

We have volunteer opportunities Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday from 3:30-6. Our ask is that volunteers try to commit to the same day of the week so they can work with the same students. The best-case scenario for us is someone volunteering once a week, but we’ve had success with other scenarios and have a lot of flexibility. 

For more information, please direct students to Any interested volunteers can email to learn more and get started!
