Playworks for every kid

Playworks Training

We believe that every child should have a place on the playground, and we can give you the tools to create it. Playworks Training helps schools and youth organizations around the country create theirs through hands-on professional development workshops and collaborative consultation. Built on best practices in youth development, we teach essential skills that transform playgrounds, and change lives. Evaluation of our training programs show a reduction of disciplinary incidents, a decrease of injuries on the playgrounds and a positive change in students behavior in the classroom.

Tailored to Your Community

Designed for playground supervisors, educators, and youth workers who support playground activities, Playworks Training leverages the power of play to accelerate kids’ learning and wellness. We offer a range of Training programs intended for groups of 10 or more participants, from half-day workshops to full-year immersions. Depending on your staff, budget, and goals, we can help you select the option that’s best for your school, district, or youth organization.
