I have worked for Power Play in the past, coaching and working with girls in under served areas of NYC to empower them through sports and the life skills you can learn from them. This organization helps girls understand and learn how sports can enable positive growth and provide life long opportunities.
I have worked either directly or indirectly with PowerPlay NYC since its inception. I have been very impressed with the work they do to empower girls to succeed by teaching them life, athleteic and leadership skills. The girls who pareticipate in the PowerPlay programs gain the direction, strength and resolve to become future leaders in their community.
I have supported this organization for several years as a corporate outreach and personal donor for these reasons:
- dedicated leadership
- well prepared girls (in learning lessons of sports activity as well as opportunities behind the scenes of sports, e.g. journalism, tv production, etc.). The girls were poised, asked good questions in the interviews. Very impressive
BEST PROGRAM BY FAR! Gives young girls the opportunity to explore and be introduced to all sports. Helps them to gain knowledge, leadership skills and social skills. This program allows girls to get a head start in preparing for the real world and the sports world. This program teaches girls about their health and abilities to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
As an employee of PowerPlay NYC, I greatly appreciate the attention to sports and life skills offered to the young ladies of New York City. PowerPlay NYC offers opportunity for its staff to creatively and actively get involved with these young ladies in a safe, healthy and fun environment that has the girls wanting to attend each and every week. I know because these girls tell me as their coach and it feels great! I know PowerPlay NYC is building strong, intuitive and confident women daily and I am a strong believer of that!
My involvement with PowerPlay NYC came about two years ago when we were hired to produce their annual fundraising event. I quickly became inspired and enamored with the organization, attending their leadership academy programs and seeing the young women in action. We host an intern annually and are greatly rewarded by our work with PowerPlay. For a small organization they do extremely powerful work and have a tremendous impact on young women throughout NYC. To my knowledge there is no other non-profit quite like PowerPlay in NYC which makes their work even more valuable.
I work with young girls a well as women in the sport of golf. I have seen these girls in action and it was not on the sports field. I saw them performing like professionals at a recent networking event. They had taken the lessons of their sports, integrity, confidence, and best effort and applied each to meeting and greeting every guest . I was so impressed...what champions!
