As you may know, Playworks has been recognized as a social innovator by the Social Innovation Forum. We were chosen for our proven and scalable model aimed at increasing physical activity and changing the climate in low-income schools.
I’ve spent the last 4 months working with a consulting team to strengthen our program model, social impact, and strategic vision. This work has been incredibly helpful to both my professional development and our Metro Boston operation.
On Tuesday, 5/4, I was able to share our program with a room of 200 “social investors” (thanks to those of you who were there!) through a 3-minute presentation, and then roughly 50 people chose to hear me give a 13-minute presentation that went into detail about our work. You can watch my 3-minute presentation by following this link: Max’s SIF Presentation.
In the next 2 years Playworks will serve 10,000 kids in 32 low-income schools across Massachusetts. Thank you for your continued support and belief that play can change the way kids experience the school day!
