push past your comfort zone and challenge yourself to create, iterate, and grow.

join a community of peers

work with the support and accountability that come with being part of a community of like-minded peers.

learn the mindset and the skills that you need for the future of work.

stand out from the crowd

how does squash work

each challenge is a month-long design sprint with 2 weekly live sessions. each live session runs for 90 minutes. within a month, students will explore a challenge, ideate a solution, build a prototype, take action and show their work.

why projects

projects are a way to explore your interests, channel your passion into something tangible, strengthen or develop new skills, and learn new concepts when it feels relevant and purposeful.

who is part of the community

squash is building a community of teen changemakers. as we launch, squash is for young innovators ages 15-19 but we will soon expand and invite teens ages 13 & 14 to join us as well.

why a portfolio

grades, resumés and standardized tests tell incomplete stories about who we are as learners and creators. a portfolio of work will allow students to truly showcase what they are passionate about and the work they’ve done to learn and build in that space.
