Live Like Blaine presents “Game Changers: Leadership Strategies on and off the Field.”

LLB hosts a unique leadership conference for high school female athletes. This annual event is held on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and offers an incredible opportunity for students to learn and engage in collaborative, leadership exercises, hear from inspiring speakers, and ask questions of our college athletes during an interactive panel. The inaugural conference was held in January 2016 at The William Penn Charter School in Philadelphia and brought together over 150 girls from 50 diverse high schools in the Philadelphia/New Jersey area. This year we are excited to host the 9th annual CPLC on Monday, January 15th from 10:00am – 2:30pm. Our amazing speakers this year are Jaz Smith, a coach, a CEO and founder of Eyekonz, and Karen Coleman, the new Head of School at Penn Charter.

Always a highlight, the athlete panel provides high school students an opportunity to learn from and engage with college athletes.


We are so fortunate to have had the following inspiring college athletes share their leadership journeys on and off the field :

Sam Boyes – Swimming, Senior, La Salle

Jorden Concordia – Lacrosse, Senior, St. Joe’s

Joelle McElroy – Field Hockey, Sophomore, Haverford

Ashley McQueen – Lacrosse, Freshman, St. Joe’s

Liana Moli – Lacrosse, Junior, St. Joe’s
