BREAKING THROUGH WALLS

 

THE WALLS WE OVERCOME

Social segregation and the opportunity gap are holding our city back. 

Social Segregation

If everyone spent just 2-5% more time in a more diverse setting, we would reduce our city's social segregation by half.

 

MASSACHUSETTS INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY

The Opportunity Gap

Only 32% of Maine youth earn a post-secondary degree. The number drops to 16% for students who qualify for free lunch.

     

EDUCATE MAINE

 

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

ACCESS

PCS programs remove barriers to participation by offering financial aid, transportation, free equipment, home visits, religious accommodations, translated materials, and more.

EQUITY

Every student needs a different level of support. We leverage multiple layers of programming and wrap-around services to meet students where they are and help them move forward.

INTEGRATION

PCS fosters purposeful inclusion across all lines of difference. We use squash and our mission as common ground to create a second home for everyone.
