THE STORY:

For even the brightest students who come from urban, public school backgrounds, the opportunity to attend boarding school can mean the difference between attending an Ivy League school verses not even graduating high school. While these students may have all the potential in the world, the lack of proper mentorship, academic support, and a safe environment can have life-long consequences. Treshawn Felder is no exception.

Over the past two years working with Treshawn and other students while serving as an AmeriCorps member with Harlem Lacrosse and Leadership (HLL), my family and I have witnessed first-hand that with the a proper support system and will to succeed, our student-athletes can achieve great things.

Coming from the General Grant Houses on 125th Street, Treshawn has overcome innumerable odds to reach the point where he will now be attending The Harvey School. Outside of school where his favorite subjects are English and Japanese, Treshawn excels on the lacrosse field as a fleet-footed, left-handed attackman. As he continues to develop his stick skills, we have no doubt that Treshawn can develop into a Division I lacrosse player. He is also an avid basketball player and is looking forward to playing football for the first time next year.

While schools, such as Harvey, are truly exemplary in their generosity towards making their schools affordable, there are sometimes portions of the costs that cannot be covered. In an effort to ensure that Treshawn has the opportunity to attend Harvey and reach his full potential as a student, athlete, and individual, we are looking to create an Incidental Fund to cover the remaining cost of his tuition. Our goal for the 2015-2016 academic year is to raise $9,000. A contribution in any amount would be greatly appreciated. Money donated to this Crowdrise page will then be directly sent to The Harvey School. If you have additional questions or concerns, please feel free to contact myself (Michael Froehlich) at michaelh.froehlich@gmail.com or Jody Froehlich at jody.froehlich@gmail.com.

Thank you very much. We look forward to sharing Treshawn’s continuing success with you all.

 

For more information on HLL, please feel free to visit our website, harlemlacrosse.org or read a synopsis on our organization below:

Harlem Lacrosse and Leadership (“HLL”) is a 501(c)(3) youth development organization that provides lacrosse, academic tutoring, and mentoring services to help at-risk middle students from Harlem, Washington Heights, and the Bronx. HLL’s mission is to provide a safe, structured environment for children to learn, complete, and develop into leaders in their communities. HLL improves academic performance and sociability with a holistic, sports-based program that offers students new opportunities and promotes long-term scholastic success. HLL students gain important values of teamwork, perseverance, motivation, self-confidence, and good health.

HLL currently serves over 200 students in four Harlem middle schools. Both Frederick Douglass Academy I (“FDA”) and P.S. / M.S. 149 the Sojourner Truth School have a boys and girls team, managed by three Program Directors (“PD”) and a Head Coach. We also have two new boys programs with full-time PD’s at Promise Academy II and P.S./I.S. – A. Philip Randolph that just successfully completed their first year of programming. All of HLL’s lacrosse programs hold practice two times per week during the fall and spring seasons with clinics, scrimmages, and games on weekends. In order to play lacrosse, HLL students must attend study halls, during which students work on school assignments under the supervision of academic mentors to earn equipment upgrades as well as eligibility for games and weekend events. Students that struggle with school assignments receive special attention with after-school tutoring sessions on non-lacrosse days and weekends.

Liliane Kates made me aware of Treshawn's story and he reminds me of many kids that had a better life with the help of my family while I was growing up. 3 years ago
