Overview: After 20 years of successful programming in Boston and Lawrence, SquashBusters is very pleased to announce its expansion to Providence, RI in the late fall of 2017. This expansion will be supported by the construction of a brand new 12 court squash facility, developed in partnership with the Moses Brown School and located on Moses Brown's campus. This facility will allow SquashBusters to successfully launch a first-rate urban squash program and eventually to grow the program so that it serves 100+ middle and high school students. With a loyal squash community, several world-class educational institutions, and significant after-school program need and proximity to Boston, Providence represents a great city for SquashBusters' expansion. The Executive Director will be responsible for raising all operating revenues and for building and overseeing a top-notch program reflective of SquashBusters values and expectations. The SquashBusters Providence Executive Director will report to and be supported by the CEO and COO of SquashBusters.
