Playworks creates a place for every kid on the playground — an essential opportunity for children to explore their imaginations, connect with other people and stretch and grow physically, emotionally and socially. Through the non-profit’s full-time, direct service model, Playworks Coaches enhance and transform recess and play into a positive experience that helps kids and teachers get the most out of every learning opportunity. The model has been shown to decrease bullying, to positively affect students’ attention and behavior when back in the classroom, and to create a safer and more inclusive recess environment.
