Junior Coach Amalia Makes Excellent Happen

  1. Updates

Junior Coach Amalia attends Mendell Elementary School in Roxbury and works with Playworks Coach Collin. Amalia is an incredible leader who consistently upholds Playworks' core values. She always comes to Junior Coach training ready to learn and works hard during her recess shifts.

Amalia has embraced her role as a student leader at Mendell Elementary and is always willing to troubleshoot any issues with her Playworks coach. In November, Amalia attended all of her Junior Coach trainings. She was confident during recess and led games for all students. Amalia has even used her leadership skills in the classroom by listening and following directions.

Additionally, Amalia joined the Playworks girl's basketball team. Her continuous encouragement and positive attitude have rubbed off on her teammates. Amalia can be found cheering on her teammates and opponents, ensuring that everyone has a positive experience during the game.

The Mendell and Playworks community appreciate Amalia for her incredible display of leadership and kindness towards others. We look forward to seeing her continue to grow as a student, leader, and Junior Coach.
