Playworks and Active Schools Partnership



Playworks is proud to be a partner of Active Schools and is committed to supporting schools in the network in their pursuit of safe and healthy play.  As part of our collaboration with Active Schools, we are offering enrolled schools a 10% discount on our Power of Play workshop which is one of our most popular trainings. 

Power of Play Workshop Overview

The Power of Play workshop introduces the importance of play and lays the foundation for creating a safe, healthy, and respectful environment for youth. Playworks trainers give you and your staff the introductory tools needed to create safe and inclusive play opportunities for all students. It also includes a discussion of the various barriers that youth face and how adults can help them navigate and overcome these challenges. Participants will walk away understanding how to select and initiate games that support the physical, social, and emotional development of their students.

Is This Program Right For You?
Our local Playworks teams are happy to answer questions and walk you through every step of our process. To receive a personalized assessment with no obligation to commit, please submit the assessment form and someone will respond to your inquiry.  Please mention that you heard about the Power of Play workshop through Active Schools and that you are a member of the Active Schools network to ensure you receive your 10% discount.
