Harlem Lacrosse’s mission is to empower the children who are most at risk for academic decline and dropout to rise above their challenges and reach their full potential. Harlem Lacrosse inspires children to dream about tomorrow while working hard on the field and in the classroom today. The organization provides school-based, year-round support for our students by placing a full-time staff member at our school sites for each of our programs. Our Program Directors maintain a constant presence in the lives of the students we serve. They are tutors, mentors, and coaches who provide individualized attention and help them reach their full potential. At each program, we provide school-based support, lacrosse practice and games, college trips and partnerships, admissions counseling, service learning and career exploration and mentoring.
As an official charity partner of the 2017 New York City Triathlon, Harlem Lacrosse is assembling an awesome team of athletes who will be braving the waters of the mighty Hudson River, biking along Manhattan’s West Side Highway, and running through New York’s famed Central Park. Join us and help support a fantastic cause!
