We are thrilled to announce that Treniyyah Anderson, Philadelphia Program Coordinator for Grassroots Health, was selected this week into Laureus USA’s Sport for Good Cities Emerging Leaders program.
Treniyyah already has an impressive resume, coordinating Grassroots Health’s programs in Washington DC before making the move to Philadelphia this January to launch our inaugural programs in Philadelphia schools. Just last month, she led the training of our first group of Temple University college athletes to become volunteer health educators, and this semester she is launching pilot programs at Global Leadership Academy Southwest and Community Council Learning Academy.
“Treniyyah is a relationship-builder and leader by example: the first to get out there and try something, and bring others along with her clear passion and commitment to her community. This Emerging Leader opportunity will help her to cultivate new skills to strengthen her leadership skills and help Grassroots Health grow strategically in Philadelphia,” said Jane Wallis, Associate Director of Grassroots Health.
In the words of Laureus USA, a leading sport-for-development organization that is hosting the Sport for Good Cities Emerging Leaders Program, “there is a deep pool of talented, passionate young professionals in the Sport for Development sector, yet not many pipelines are devoted to their growth and development. To cultivate the next generation of diverse leaders who will lead programs, organizations, and teams that are supporting young people through sport, Laureus USA created the Sport for Good Cities Emerging Leaders Program to build professional capacities and skills, foster mentoring and peer relationships, and help propel participants into future leadership positions.”
“I am ecstatic to be named a Sport For Good Emerging Leaders Fellow,” said Treniyyah. “I really look forward to the program teaching me higher-level thinking and skills that I can apply to our expansion and beyond!”
