Harlan comes to Capital after serving as a director and communications associate at Row New York, a pioneering afterschool rowing and academic program for young people from underserved areas to build strength, gain confidence, and pursue excellence through rowing.  At Row New York, she recruited and coached over 100 middle school rowers from under-resourced areas to build fitness, academic performance, and a strong interest in college. Prior to Row New York, Harlan worked as a senior legal assistant for the civil rights law firm, Sanford, Heisler, Kimpell, LLP in Washington, DC. 

Harlan has a B.A from Cornell University where she competed at the Division I level in rowing and served as Captain of Cornell Women’s Crew her senior year. She has over 5 years of coaching experience and 12 years of rowing experience. She has resided in the DC area for over 5 years and has competed, coached, or worked with the District’s three main rowing clubs: Capital Rowing Club, Potomac Boat Club, and Thompson Boat Center.

Program Description

Capital Juniors is making rowing and academic support accessible for DC’s young people to guide them on a path toward excellence. Juniors offers year-round after-school and summer programming combining competitive rowing and academic support. Students learn discipline, enjoy camaraderie with peers, build fitness, and complete community service through environmental stewardship.

Capital Juniors is no ordinary youth rowing team. Juniors recruits students from all 8 DC wards with a special emphasis on those closest to the boathouse (Capitol Hill and communities East of the River). Juniors is committed to redefining access to rowing. Rowing has typically been an expensive and exclusive sport. Through grants, individuals donations, and in-kind support from Capital Rowing Club, Juniors makes the sport affordable and accessible to all.

Founder: Rachel Blessing,

DCPS teacher, the program began with only a handful of athletes from one school. Only 5 years later, the program serves over 55 students from over 16 schools and all 8 DC wards.
