About the Pittsburgh Harlequins
The Pittsburgh Harlequins Childrens Charities was founded in 1995 as a 501(c)3 not-for-profit youth mentoring organization. The PHRFA uses a volunteer network of nationally certified mentors to provide community rugby programs to disadvantaged youth and teen groups throughout Allegheny County, with the goal of instilling the values that team athletics can provide, including self-confidence, leadership, and integrity.
In 2014 the Harlequins have undertaken our 19th year of uninterrupted Youth Mentoring Programs in the Pittsburgh Area. The 2014 Program includes 28 neighborhoods, 1500 volunteer hours, and over 200 youth from predominantly at risk communities.
