At Playworks, we seek out energetic, creative people who ensure every kid has the chance to play every day. Our core values of inclusion, respect, healthy community, and healthy play are the foundation of our organization and are infused in all aspects of our work, including recruiting and retaining the best playful professionals we can.

With platforms like LinkedIn For Nonprofits, we are able to showcase our culture and values to recruit top talent like Program Coordinator Nina Parker. “I first learned about Playworks through LinkedIn,” Nina shared. “I’m the type of person who can’t sit behind a desk. I would prefer to be running around and having fun.”

LinkedIn For Nonprofits helps nonprofit organizations hire, campaign, fundraise, and develop their talent. As a tech company, LinkedIn believes in using their assets for good, helping nonprofits take the groundswell that they’re building at the community level and amplify that through the LinkedIn network.

“When I step out on to that playground, I know that I’m really having an impact on these kids. It’s amazing!” – Nina Parker, Playworks Program Coordinator
