CCS AGENCY SPOTLIGHT

Harlem Leadership and Lacrosse

CCS-supported Harlem Lacrosse and Leadership provides academic intervention, leadership training, and lacrosse to at-risk youth. HLL was founded in 2011 with the goal of offering students the discipline, work ethic, and leadership skills necessary to gain admission to and succeed at top academic institutions. Now numbering close to 300, HLL students achieve average core class GPA increases of between 5-10 points each year. HLL has maintained a 100% graduation rate among middle school participants at Frederick Douglass Academy, and has helped students earn over $10 million in scholarship offers from some of the most prestigious preparatory and secondary schools in the country.
