PowerPlay NYC works to advance the lives of girls in New York City, helping them grow physically, emotionally, and academically. The PowerPlay NYC SuperSTARS Leadership Academy (SSLA) is a free, year-long leadership development program for girls entering grades 9-12 in the 2017-18 school year. An important part of the Leadership Academy is the service component.
For one semester, SSLA participants serve as youth mentor coaches in the PowerPlay NYC STARS Series after-school program. SSLA participants assist lead coaches by co-facilitating sports-based activities and serving as mentors to girls in elementary and middle school. Additionally, SSLA participants will develop their own bodies and minds through sports, healthy living activities, and advisories. They will also deepen critical skills in writing, technology, and networking for success, as well as build a portfolio of real world work experience, service, and mentorships that will them prepare for college and careers.
