PowerPlay’s STARS Series Program

PowerPlay NYC is looking to build new partnerships with schools, community-based organizations, and NYCHA houses throughout the city to provide their STARS Series after school, youth development program, which provides sports instruction and health and learning activities to elementary and middle school girls. The program develops girls as leaders, advances girls’ health, and creates safe spaces where girls play hard, have fun, and form bonds with strong, caring women. STARS Series programs generally meet weekly, and each session features girls-only sports skill-building sessions followed by group discussions and activities utilizing the Women’s Sports Foundation’s “GoGirlGo” curriculum. PowerPlay believes that if girls don’t see it; they won’t do it--therefore their program activities are run by trained female coaches who look like the girls they work with. PowerPlay is able to provide this programming free of charge contingent upon funding. To learn more, please contact Marissa Munoz, Program Director, at

PASE believes all kids deserve a safe, nurturing space during out-of-school time where they have opportunities to explore their passions while connecting with and learning from caring adults. We exist to improve the quality of afterschool programs for children and teens living in poverty.
