Each year, Beyond Walls invests $5,000 in every child in the program.
Recent reports find that only 40% of Minnesota’s children are at grade level when entering kindergarten, and that the opportunity gap only widens from that point on. Currently, only four states in the U.S. have a larger gap than Minnesota. Your donation helps provide academic support to students in the Twin Cities as they begin their quest towards higher education. A majority of these children will be first-generation college students. We are grateful for your contribution and thank you for your generous gift to help students in the Twin Cities.

Volunteers are what make Beyond Walls work.
A key component to our success is our network of program volunteers who support day-to-day programming on the court and in the classroom. On the squash court, this support allows students to improve at a much faster rate than in a group setting through one-to-one instruction and positive feedback. In the classroom, students benefit from the increased attention of one-to-one tutoring. Volunteers can also participate by chaperoning weekend activities and volunteering at events.
Whatever your schedule, we’ll find a way to include you in the program! If you are interested in volunteering, or if you have any questions, please contact Sammy Loeks-Davis, Beyond Walls Program Director, 612-624-1810 or email@example.com.

Become a Mentor Today
Beyond Walls pairs students one-to-one with trusted adult role models who support them through middle school, high school, and college. This relationship is meant to last year after year and is a long-term commitment for our students. College students also serve as key mentors for our students during these very formative adolescent years.
Volunteer Opportunity Areas
During the school year, squash practice is held from 3:30–5:45 pm. We need volunteers with a squash background to help lead guided instruction on the courts.
During the school year, Beyond Walls academic sessions are conducted at the Recreation and Wellness Center Monday–Thursday from 4:30–6:00 pm. Volunteers work one-to-one with students in the classroom, giving guided support through homework help, testing sessions, life skills and college prep. We need volunteers for either middle school or high school academics.
Volunteers also have an opportunity to help out during our numerous events. Events we have held in the past include: Beyond Walls Pro Squash Tournament, quarterly family events and various community service event
