On Saturday December 1st, at the 92nd Street Y’s May Center, Global Game Changers (GGC) hosted a group of students from Vaughn College.
This group, mostly freshman, embarked on a basketball, teambuilding, and leadership clinic administered by GGC partners Michael Vaughan Cherubin, Julie Younes, and Danny Ourian. The clinic began by creating an inclusive place to play through positive reinforcement, groups cheers, high energy and of course, lots of high-fives. The clinic continued as participants learned about one another (such as hobbies, birth date, favorite movie, number of siblings) as they simultaneously learned the fundamental basketball skill of passing. Throughout the remainder of the clinic, the Vaughn College students where led through a montage of basketball drills and team building activities, all geared at uniting the group, building trust, and developing leadership skills.
GGC is happy to thank Vaughn College and the 92nd Street Y for helping make this event possible.
