About Our Host

Access Youth Academy is a continuous life-skill and workforce preparedness program for underprivileged youth aged 12-24+ designed to foster equal access to higher education, healthy lifestyle habits, and post-college graduation employment. To fuel success, Access uses a combination of academic mentorship, health and wellness, community service, and leadership training, using the sport of squash as a catalyst.

In order to bring this transformative program to more underserved San Diego youth, Access Youth Academy has completed constructing a new academic and athletic facility in southeastern San Diego. This new location will allow Access to reach hundreds if not thousands more at-risk youths, serve more first-generation college students, and provide community classrooms to be used for the provision of educational, workforce preparedness, and informational services for southeast San Diego adults and transition-age youth.
