Research shows that girls engage in physical activity differently from boys and are increasingly dropping out of physical activity as they get older. Dynamo Girl reverses this downward trend by offering after-school classes in both independent and public schools in Manhattan, Brooklyn and in Westchester. Our goal is for each girl is to improve her own individual athletic abilities while benefiting from the joy of being part of a group that learns and works together.
Dynamo Girl’s unique after-school program for girls, ages 5 and up, builds self‐esteem through physical activity. We teach fundamental sports skills in a safe and joyful environment while integrating a social/emotional program based on the Girls Leadership curriculum. Facilitated by women coaches trained in our unique curriculum, our classes address in real-time common challenges girls face when working in teams and trying new activities. We create opportunities for building leadership, listenership and collaboration skills. In addition, we provide girls the chance to grow their abilities in an environment designed specifically for them.
