PowerPlay is an exceptional program for young women. This program teaches them about their health, sports, building resumes, and the importance of volunteering. It also gives great volunteer opportunities and summer work programs. The networking skills that these young women learn are invaluable. Phillipa

I feel extremely blessed to have gotten the opportunity to work with PowerPlay NYC, Inc. They do tremendous work with young women in NYC. They teach invaluable life skills through sports and other activities. Some of these young women have come to our Firm (Hughes Hubbard & Reed) for various programs and left lasting impressions of their poise, intelligence, professionalism and maturity. We have also had the pleasure of working with them in a fashion show for one of the hottest fashion companies in the world. They once again demonstrated many of the above referenced skills. PowerPlay NYC is doing phenomenal work with these young women and I am grateful that I have had the chance to meet and to get to work with them.
