On Oct. 7 Simon Cataldo, Founder and Adrian Heneveld, Executive Director of Harlem Lacrosse–Boston told us about this highly effective program, launched in 2016. Harlem Lacrosse is a “school-based non-profit organization that changes the life trajectories of youth through daily wrap-around academic support, mentoring, leadership training, college readiness career exploration, admissions counseling and lacrosse instruction.” The program offers more than lacrosse, although the love of lacrosse engages students who would otherwise drop school. Students, both boys and girls, come from Mattapan, Dorchester, East Boston, and Chelsea. Cataldo grew up in Concord where he attended public school. Thanks to his involvement, Concord-Carlisle Youth Lacrosse is an important Harlem partner, sharing tournaments and clinics at CCHS and in Boston. Concord Rotarians found Simon and Adrian’s talk and slide show inspiring.
