THE STORY:

OUTREACH WITH LACROSSE & SCHOOLS wrote -

The OWLS mission is to use lacrosse as a means to provide transformative programming for at-risk and low-income students in Chicago. We do not simply teach kids to play lacrosse but rather provide them with a year-round experience based on high-quality athletic programming, enrichment experiences, and academic support. Since the majority of our programming is school-based, it is important that we instill values conducive to the development of high-character student-athletes.

Since 2011, OWLS has successfully launched and managed five inner-city school-based programs in Chicago, and introduced our integrated lacrosse program to more than 500 at-risk youth. Last year we raised over $15,000 allowing us to launch two new school-based programs and send 12 students to overnight lacrosse camps at the University of Notre Dame and Northwestern University. Our goal this year is to raise $20,000 to support the development of new programming while improving our current inner-city lacrosse projects.

As our program has grown, so has the need for financial support and improvements within our organization’s infrastructure. Specifically we want to improve existing programs by increasing student participation at our current school sites by 25% (last year we had 150 active participants, this year we want 200), hiring program directors for our scholarship support initiative, and adding new enrichment experiences to our curriculum. Enrichment experiences would include college visits, museum days, and shadow days with local businesses. We strongly believe in this program and our ability to provide opportunities that Chicago's at-risk youth would not otherwise have, and we would greatly appreciate your support!
