Santa Barbara School of Squash (SBSOS)

Santa Barbara School of Squash (SBSOS) is an urban youth enrichment program combining academic tutoring with squash instruction and mentoring in order to increase the opportunities and resources available to youth in our city. SBSOS aims to provide consistent and reliable academic and athletic support and guidance to the children and families attending schools in Santa Barbara

Few things shape the stability of a child’s life and a community’s future like education, and it all begins with being able to read. Not all students learn the same way or have the same attention spans. Reading is reading, and if you can get a student to read about something they care about, then they will be more interested and like what they are reading – even if it’s a magazine.
