BREAKING THROUGH WALLS
THE WALLS WE OVERCOME
We won't stop until we fill the gaps
The Opportunity Gap
Youth are facing racial and economic education inequities, a shortage of opportunities after school, and barriers to earning post-secondary credentials.
The Wellness Gap
Families are looking for programs that provide a safe place for more exercise, less screen time, healthy food, and positive community relationships.
The Integration Gap
Americans are stronger when they stand united, yet many of our social networks and spaces segregate neighbors by income, race, or political affiliations.
THE WALLS WE USE
Students spend equal amounts of time on court, as they do in the classrooms, yoga studio, kitchen, and traveling beyond our facility. Our programs are designed to fully support each student and their family from elementary school into adulthood.

OUR CORE PRINCIPLES
PCS programs remove barriers to participation by offering financial aid, transportation, free equipment, home visits, religious accommodations, translated materials, flexible communication, and more.
Every student needs a different level of support. We leverage multiple layers of programming and wrap-around services to meet youth and families where they are and help them move forward.
PCS fosters purposeful inclusion across all lines of difference. We use squash, our mission, and community events/conversations as common ground to create a second home for everyone.
