Play Rugby USA Development and Communications Coordinator
The mission of Play Rugby USA (PRUSA) is to use the unique power of rugby to inspire and empower youth, primarily from underserved communities, to go-forward and realize their true potential. Our programs are intentionally designed to promote the physical and mental health and well-being of youth. Since its founding in 2003, PRUSA has partnered with 300 public schools and community-based organizations throughout New York City, and currently provides programming for more than 3,000 school-aged youth per year. PRUSA’s staff consists of a leadership team of 18 full-time experienced youth development administrators and a cadre of 108 part-time Youth Development Mentors (YDMs), who are uniquely trained in SBYD and use trauma-sensitive coaching techniques that allow them to address the needs of young people who suffer the adverse effects of living in poverty. The training incorporated by YDMs is proven by research to stimulate brain development that results in improved self-concept, critical thinking, discipline and healthy decision-making. PRUSA are considered by many to be a leader in the field and have just joint a brand-new innovative SBYD-Hub Model with other leading SBYD organizations in a brand-new facility in mid-town Manhattan. On the cutting-edge of the SBYD sector, PRUSA is in the middle of a 3-year strategic initiative to transform the SBYD sector through innovative and impactful programing.
