Harlem Lacrosse is a school-based non-profit organization which creates opportunities for the young lacrosse players of South LA , Compton, and Inglewood to develop new skills, get mentoring, academic support, leadership training, college readiness, and career exploration. I joined the Youth Leadership Board of the organization last year so I will be heading into my second year with the Harlem Lacrosse family and I have been playing lacrosse for three years. In volunteering for this organization, I hope to be a role model for the kids and inspire them to be the best self they can be. I wish to raise money so that Harlem Lacrosse can provide more exciting opportunities for the kids in order for them to reach their full potential. I am so fortunate for the opportunity to play lacrosse both inside and outside of school but unfortunately this is not an opportunity everyone has. By joining Harlem Lacrosse I hope to help guide these kids and provide them with as much knowledge and skill that I can.
