Potential Made Powerful

Access Youth Academy was created in 2006 to transform the lives of underserved youth through academic mentorship and urban squash. In a 12-year commitment that begins in 7th grade, Access students embark on a curriculum of intellectual, physical, and social development where academic enrichment, sports training, and financial support combine to help them realize their full potential.

The dedication required of both scholarship and sportsmanship creates a culture of character and determination- one that yields powerful results. Access Youth Academy shapes champions and leaders, with skills that fuel students through high-school graduation, on to elite universities, and well beyond into their careers.

Over a decade later, we see leaders where young students once stood. And in today's students, we see dynamic, empowered lives unfurling on the court, in the classroom, and in communities- proof that so long as opportunity is there, exceptional effort and guidance will take young people to places they never thought possible.
