PowerPlay NYC advances the lives of girls through sports, helping them grow physically, emotionally and academically stronger.
The SuperSTARS Leadership Academy is a high-impact, year-long, FREE leadership development program that prepares high school young women in NYC for college and the workforce through a structured, girl-centered approach focused on three key areas: sports/physical fitness, college access, and career/life skills development.
The Academy kicks off with a six-week intensive summer session where girls participate in a variety of sports, develop workplace and life skills and learn about the college process. During the school year, girls gain access to activities to build their life and leadership skills through attending monthly workshops. Our other school year commitments include the opportunity to grow as mentors and leaders by participating in our peer coach program working with our younger after-school participants or to benefit from having a mentor who will help guide them in areas of networking, resume building, college application requirements, and more.
We’re looking to accept students that will be entering 9th to 12th grade in the Fall of 2021.
