City Schools Sports Association

About City Schools Sports Association

The CSSA is a Non Profit organization that was founded in 2019 with the intent to provide quality sports programming to the students of New York City. We currently have various sports programs across the boroughs for both middle and high school athletes. Our athletic league aims to motivate and empower students to develop leadership, well-being, sportsmanship, and interpersonal skills. All while nurturing a sense of civic responsibility by giving back to the community.

Throughout our organizations tenure, we have worked with several interns through Fordham University and the "Serving the City" initiative. This program provides students with equitable access to internship opportunities in New York City’s arts and culture sectors.

Several of our interns have been hand picked by Fordham University to be highlighted and showcased on their website, which you can find here:


Social Media Intern

June 2023 - August 2023 New York City, NY
“I liked that was I able to be creative on my own and use what I knew to create the best work that I could. Having creative freedom is always great. Billy was always very kind and accommodating. He provided good feedback and asked me many times about what I believe could be done better. He gave me the proper tools and details for all the tasks, and provided timely responses whenever I had questions. I also loved that I had the freedom to work whenever I wanted as my work was mostly remote, so I was able to work everything in just fine with my busy schedule.”

Social Media Intern

October 2022 - December 2022 New York City, NY
“My experience interning at the City School Sports Association has been conducive to my personal and professional growth. As a social media intern, I focused on revamping the social media pages to increase brand identity and consistency. The working culture was empowering because I felt my ideas were heard, especially with my advisors' incredible support and feedback. It has been great to work in an exciting sports environment and create compelling content.”
