A group of foundation, business, and government leaders gathered at the Case Foundation in DC to meet with Playworks’ President and Founder Jill Vialet and discuss Playworks’ strategy for growth and sustainability over the long term. It was exciting to share our vision — that one day every child in America will have the chance to play every day — and discuss our plans for getting there.
For the 2010-2011 school year, Playworks DC creates fun, safe play opportunities to 5,000 students every school day. Yet we know there are many more children in Washington, DC who need and would benefit greatly by more play in their lives. Our goal to bring the power of play to much larger number of DC kids in the coming years.
Many thanks to Ashoka: Innovators for the Public, the Corporate Executive Board, and The Case Foundation for supporting the event.
