Liz Greenberg, Executive Director of RowLA is registered and ready for Change the Game! RowLA engages girls from underserved communities in the Los Angeles area, offering them intensive rowing activities, academic tutoring and college counseling. There are 200 rowing scholarships awarded by colleges and universities but girls from underserved communities in LA are typically left out of this pool due to a lack of access to the sport of rowing.
RowLA capitalizes on the intrinsic athletic requirements of rowing to improve the health of their participants in addition to valueing the important relationship between child and coach. RowLA offers athletic and academic mentors for high school girls to build strong relationships with so they too can develop a confidence in their abilities and transfer that to college admissions.
