Balancing the demands of school can be hard students no matter what their situation, but for some kids it’s really important to get help. SquashSmarts combines the sport of Squash with academic tutoring and mentoring of under-served urban youth.

RECOMMENDED VIDEO: The Importance of Higher Education with the College Access Center

Check out this great video highlighting the College Access Center, an organization dedicated to helping students prepare for and attain higher education. This video was produced for The ‘A’ Game to introduce students to the many resources available in their community to help them succeed in life.

MiND partnered with many organizations to make “The A Game.” One of them was Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southeastern Pennsylvania. The impact of mentors on the participating students is measurable and sometimes the learning goes both ways. While the “Bigs” encourage the “Littles” to make good choices and stay in school, sometimes it’s the “Littles” who will give the sage advice to the “Bigs.”

Created in conjunction with “The A Game,” this program was made possible in part by the Wyncote Foundation.

Have you Played The “A” Game?

In May 2013 MiND launched The “A” Game, a 30 minute game geared toward middle school students. Made possible by a grant from the Wyncote Foundation, The “A” Game can be downloaded as an app for any platform. Create your own avatar and give it a try!

This game reinforces the importance of a high school education by incorporating video with game questions and together add points toward your projected life goal. Will you stick to your education? Will you earn enough to live in the mansion or the castle?
