The unforgettable evening will culminate with live entertainment.
"In October, the one millionth AmeriCorps member will take the AmeriCorps pledge, committing to “get things done” for America." Proud to say Maryland is among the top 10 states to engage Members and Baltimore among the top 10 Cities!
The Playworks Store is now open! Promote play with Playworks shirts and swag, or give kids opportunities for safe, healthy play with playground equipment and games. All sales help Playworks leverage the power of play at schools across the country.
"I don't think I realized the immediate and wide reaching impact [Playworks] would have on the culture of the school. We have kids playing together now that would never have in the past."
Fran Roy, Chief Academic Officer
