Volunteer opportunity description

The mission of PowerPlay NYC is to empower girls through play. PowerPlay NYC is dedicated to educating and empowering girls  from underserved communities through sports, teaching life skills such as teamwork, leadership, persistence, and tolerance, and fostering self-confidence and self-esteem for life.

As a volunteer assistant coach with PowerPlayNYC, you will:

  • Work directly with the STARS Series after-school program teaching girls fundamental skills in a variety of sports in 90 minute sessions
  • Assist the head PowerPlay coach with taking attendance, teaching basic skills, and running drills and games
  • Help facilitate discussions about health and wellness using the Women's Sports Foundation's GoGirlGo! curriculum
  • Promote a safe, encouraging, positive, and energetic environment for all participants

If interested, please email or call 917-344-6676 for more information.


  • Sessions occur during after-school hours (usually sometime between 3 and 6 pm)
  • Coaching assistants are required to complete  a two-hour coaches training/volunteer orientation and should be able to attend at least ~50% of the scheduled weekly sessions. We like to maintain an atmosphere of consistency for our participants.
  • Volunteer coaching assistants should be enthusiastic about sports, physical activity and healthy lifestyles, and have a passion for working with and empowering girls
  • Experience working with youth is preferred but not required – a positive attitude and a sense of humor are the most important things!
