THE STORY:

This spring, the Noble and Greenough School will be pairing with the Harlem Lacrosse and Leadership (HLL) organization.

Harlem Lacrosse & Leadership (HLL) is a non-profit youth service organization that uses lacrosse to engage at-risk children from low income areas of New York City.  HLL’s mission is to provide a safe, structured environment for children to compete, learn, and develop into future leaders in their communities.  HLL reverses declining academic performance and disruptive behavior with a holistic, sports-based program that promotes hard work, dedication, leadership, and teamwork.  HLL also connects its students with new communities, experiences, and opportunities in order to promote long-term scholastic and personal success.

Formed in 2010, HLL places dedicated lacrosse coaches in public middle schools in Harlem that offer year-round mentorship, coaching, and academic support/tutoring.  HLL’s program directors are on site every day -- before students arrive at school and well after the bell rings for them to return home. The students’ grades have risen 6-10 GPA points per year, and every one of them have graduated the 8th grade on time for five years in a row.

HLL currently has two boys programs and one girls program, operating in two Harlem middle schools: PS 149 (Sojourner Truth School) and M499 (Frederick Douglass Academy). In just three years and with over 120 middle school students served, HLL has been able to expand its reach at improving the lives of Harlem youths, including having secured over $7.5 million in academic scholarships to preparatory schools such as the Groton School, the Eaglebrook School, and the Cardigan Mountain School.
