    Keep PLAYing: High School Program Expansion

    Harlem Lacrosse seeks to expand its high school programs and staff, and teach even more students in South LA, Compton, and Inglewood how to PLAY lacrosse. This year 12 seniors, who began Harlem Lacrosse’s transformational lacrosse program as middle schoolers, were accepted into four year colleges; of those dozen trailblazers, many will be first generation college students, and 7 will be college lacrosse players despite most never attending a school with a HS program. Imagine the impact Harlem Lacrosse could have with more staff and resources!
