Oakland Lacrosse supports Oakland Public School students in becoming healthy, confident, and self empowered youth. Their programming promotes the values of unconditional love and support, being a great teammate, positive communication, and hard work. In collaboration with the Oakland Unified School District, they launched “Leading With Girls,” an initiative to build an eight team Varsity Girls’ Lacrosse league that provides 175 girls and their families with a holistic, trauma informed approach to sports based youth development. Oakland Lacrosse is going beyond the sport to offer their athletes leadership development, academic counseling, college counseling, and wellness education.
