Harnessing the power of play to strengthen our kids, schools and communities.

"Playworks provides our kids with structure during recess, which helps with behavior. Recess is a more joyful time because kids are actually doing things -- which helps with the overall joy in school.”

Teacher, Akili Academy of New Orleans

"I have 30 years of teaching Physical Education under my belt and have attended many conferences, but I have to say, Playworks is one of the best ways to get students active and excited quickly... I have been using several games and procedures in our regular Physical Education classes, and it works!!!"

Brenda Derrick, P.E. Instructor
