Playworks for every kid

Active Schools

As a national initiative to ensure that 60 minutes of physical activity a day is the norm in K-12 schools across the country, Active Schools equips schools with the resources and tools to increase physical education and physical activity opportunities for students.

In collaboration with Active Schools, Playworks is providing an opportunity for schools to receive a grant of a free Playworks Power of Play (POP) workshop.  

This three hour workshop will be facilitated by Playworks’ national trainers or regionally certified trainers and will focus on teaching educators in your school about how to use play to increase physical activity and support learning. We will be offering 25 grants valued at $2,000 each to selected members of the Active Schools community. We are excited about the opportunity to share one of our most popular trainings with many of you and look forward to learning more about your school and needs of your community.
