I have had the wonderful experience of working with PowerPlay NYC for the last year and one-half. During that time I have visited the Summer Academy several times as a guest speaker talking to the girls about my career in public relations and more importantly their college/career paths and opportunities that are available to them. I have also attended lacrosse clinics and watched how the girls adopted to a new sport (to almost all of them) and immediately worked in teams, applying the athletic and team building skills they were being taught. I am amazed at the poise that these girls display and how they embrace the program and the opportunity it provides. I usually visit several times during the course of the program and it is remarkable to see how the girls develop in a very short time. Through the sports coaching and life mentoring they receive they invariably come away with more confidence and a better idea of things that are available to them and achievable if they work hard.
