A National Movement: Since 1995, students from urban public schools across the country have benefited from longitudinal support in: Education, Health & Wellness, Community, and Career. Beginning with SquashBusters in Boston, then spreading to New York with StreetSquash and CitySquash, and subsequently as far away as India, there are now 22 member programs in operation.
Mile High Squash Comes To Denver: In 2008, Mile High Squash was launched with the support of Mayor Hickenlooper, The Anschutz Foundation, The Denver Athletic Club, The Hashim Khan Foundation, and a dedicated group of leaders.
Mile High Squash Becomes Mile High 360: In late 2014, Mile High Squash added cycling as a second anchor sport in order to expand the number of students served, resulting in a stronger organization with improved stability and sustainability for generations to come. With that pivot, Mile High Squash changed its name to Impact360 - now Mile High 360. This program expansion brought the cycling community’s passion to the aid of students who were ready to reach for the stars.
Mile High 360 Today: Mile High 360 runs on two campuses. The Denver Athletic Club campus holds up to 40 students across grades 9-12, and the West Leadership Academy campus - a local 6-12 school - holds up to 80 students in grades 6-12. Students at each campus receive instruction across the three core content areas of Academics, Health & Wellness, and Life Skills.
Mile High 360 Tomorrow: We envision a single, comprehensive services campus that’s able to engage 260 students and is co-lead by a professional staff alongside Mile High 360 students.
