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

"Playworks has taught the kids new fun ways to spend their recess/down time while outside of school. In doing so it's also taught important life skills such as fairness, sportsmanship and teamwork."

Collaboration is in our nature
