SoulPhamm is a new, nonprofit organization that provides sports and arts activities for young people in New Jersey and New York City. You can learn more about us by visiting www.soulphamm.org.
Drumline Ambassadors help us build our team's reputation by actually becoming part of the drumline. Beginners are welcomed. This opportunity is for young ladies and gentlemen up to age 21.
Ultimately, you will represent SoulPhamm in competitions and high visibility performances, positioning us as a high energy, competitive team. Participating on the Drumline could also position you for a music scholarship if you are serious enough to pursue it.
The season will run until June 22nd and practices will be on Saturdays from 1pm to 3pm in Newark, New Jersey. When the line is not preparing for an event, practices may be virtual on Saturdays.
If you have a drum pad and drumsticks, that would be great but if you do not, you can use a pillow or book and some pencils or sticks until we can get you the right equipment.
For those who need community service hours, please check with your individual schools to see if this opportunity qualifies you for credit.
No phone calls please.
About SoulPhamm Inc
613 Washington Boulevard, Suite 1129, Jersey City, NJ 07310, US
Our mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of young people by providing unique artistic and athletic experiences and performances, and to assist them in achieving the highest standards of professionalism through the development of discipline, skill, confidence, cooperation, leadership, responsibility and character.
Our vision is to promote virtue, equity, unity, justice, faith, charity and a sense of common purpose and brotherhood among all people with an emphasis on the development and advancement of young people through education, athletics, service and the arts.
SoulPhamm was incorporated as a nonprofit organization in the state of New Jersey on June 25, 2021 and is the "birth-child" of Coach Luis ("Lou") and Dr. Leisa Herrera ("Mz. Doc"). The organization exists to provide training to young people in a variety of sports and performing arts and unique opportunities to display those talents through competition and performance. By integrating mentoring, life skills, opportunities for community service and academic enrichment to the athletic/artistic program, we help make our scholar-athletes as well-rounded as possible, capable of meeting and overcoming any challenges they are faced with. Although Coach Lou passed away suddenly in January 2021, the official launch of SoulPhamm was held on June 26, 2021, which coincided with his birthday weekend. SoulPhamm will recognize its own founding, as well as the achievements of our young people every year on the fourth Saturday of June, as a tribute to the life and legacy of Coach Lou.
