Playworks believes in the power of play to bring out the best in every kid. Our specialty is recess, which in too many schools is the most chaotic, unsafe and disruptive part of the school day. Playworks Maryland Power Players support the work of Playworks and provide mission-based leadership and fundraising support. The Power Players plan various fundraising events, volunteer at recess, and act as brand ambassadors for Playworks Maryland.

What is a Power Player?
