OWLS uses the sport of lacrosse to improve the quality of life for Chicago’s most at-risk youth through a holistic intervention model. Using inner-city schools and community centers as our access point, we provide this service through a unique blending of:
Academic support and mentoring
Team-based sport development programming
Service-learning and enrichment opportunities
We address our participant’s unique circumstances and individual short-term needs within a structured team environment and provide the long-term resources needed for their continued transition to a sustainable healthy quality of life.
OWLS (Outreach With Lacrosse & Schools) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charitable organization.
