Mission Statement

To improve the health and well-being of children by increasing opportunities for physical activity and safe, meaningful play.

Description

Playworks is the leading national nonprofit leveraging the power of play to transform children’s physical and emotional health. Playworks currently serves more than 900 schools in 23 U.S. cities, and reaches almost half of a million students directly and through professional training services.

At Playworks we believe in the power of play to bring out the best in every kid. We are changing school climate by leveraging the power of safe, fun, and healthy play at school every day. We create a place for every kid on the playground to feel included, be active, and build valuable social and emotional skills. We partner with schools, districts, and after-school programs to provide a service or mix of services including on-site coaches, professional training for school staff who support recess, and consultative partnerships.

Playworks is currently located in Baltimore, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Los Angelas, Metro Boston, New Orleans, Newark, Oakland & East Bay, Philadelphia, Portland, San Francisco, Sillicon Valley, Twin Cities, & Washington, D.C.
