Review for PowerPlay NYC, Inc., New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have served on the Board of PowerPlay for 5 years, and in that time have seen firsthand its impact on the girls it serves. Four graduates of PowerPlay's Summer Leadership Academy who served as interns for my company not only did outstanding work, but also came to realize their own potential. One of the girls who had come from a background of particular hardship had an "ah ha" moment during that PowerPlay summer; she knew she could succeed in a college environment, and did indeed go on to college. PowerPlay teaches life skills through the vehicle of sport and for many girls, it is their first exposure to the lessons sports at its best teaches- teamwork, dedication and "we're all in this together".
