Since the fall of 1997, CLLC has provided educational services, as well as athletic opportunities through the sport of lacrosse, to the youth of Charlestown and surrounding neighborhoods. Over the years, CLLC has helped youth and adolescents develop into not only successful students, but also contributing members of the community. Our services - which include individual tutoring, drop-in homework help, a healthy cooking program, reading groups and standardized test preparation - are free of charge and open to the community. This school year, our programs are servicing students from community schools, as well as students from schools throughout the Greater Boston area.
As an education-oriented, multi-service youth development program, we use lacrosse, academic enrichment, and community service as vehicles to enhance intellectual curiosity, support and encourage academic progress, and motivate participants to set and pursue challenging academic and athletic goals.
