Playworks is the only nonprofit organization in the country to send trained, full-time coaches to low-income, urban schools, where they transform recess and play into a positive experience that makes the most of every learning opportunity throughout the school day. They organize games and activities during recess, provide individual class game times and run a leadership development program during school hours. They also run Playworks tutoring and physical activity programs and developmental sports leagues during after school hours. Playworks also offers comprehensive training and technical support to schools, districts and communities that wish to bring safe, inclusive play to children delivered by trained and technical service professionals who play for a living. Playworks Training transports our on-site experience into active, hands-on professional development for adults who wish to bring the principles, implementation and experience of safe, healthy and positive play to the children they serve.
