Empower 2 Play cares dearly for their "E2P Family," which includes everyone affiliated with the organization--from the children they help to the newest volunteer. I came into E2P with very little experience, yet I was able to quickly learn and adapt due to the nurturing supervision and mentorship this organization has to offer. No matter what age, experience, ability or rank, E2P invites everyone to contribute their ideas and encourages discussion & collaboration. Although, for those outside of the Boston area, most work is done online, I still have made strong connections and relationships with others in the organization. With uplifting goals and a strong heart at its core, Empower 2 Play creates an outstanding environment for those they help and for those who help them.

I have enjoyed every moment of my time as a volunteer contributing writer for Empower 2 Play. This organization has an incredible mission: to use sports as a tool for leadership development, education, and community empowerment in under-resourced communities. E2P's approach to change-making involves a philosophy of inclusion and support, so that volunteers immediately feel able to make contributions from the moment they join. The team uses a variety of relevant and current technologies to ensure that communication between central management and the volunteer network remains clear. Founder and President, Coach AK, is always accessible so that I feel able to speak up with my ideas and unafraid to ask questions about each new initiative. Since this is a global organization, it is especially rewarding to contribute because I know that my work reaches communities around the world. I have also appreciated the chance to learn as I volunteer, through interviews with experts in the field and also about the world of nonprofit development in general. If you want an immediately rewarding volunteer experience, I would suggest joining the Empower 2 Play community as soon as possible.
