Adidas women creators partnered with Jefferson Elementary School and Playworks to bring the "She Breaks Barriers" initiative to life. The initiative is designed to inspire, enable and support the next generation of female athletes, creators, and leaders. Adidas invited a collective of women athletes, innovators, community leaders, entrepreneurs, and entertainers from around the world to inspire and empower Jefferson Elementary School students.
Playworks Junior Coaches (Jefferson students) were partnered with Adidas and Playworks staff to conduct classroom visitations. Our very own Jefferson students used their public speaking skills to lead physical activities with students in grades K-5. Toward the end of the visit, students had a chance to ask questions to the special guests about sports, careers, and education.
All professional athletes, innovators, community leaders, entrepreneurs, and entertainers who came to Jefferson Elementary are passionate about supporting the next generation of strong, confident, and healthy leaders. They emphasized the importance of getting involved in physical activity, but also in mindfulness and exploring higher education.
