Playworks Metro Boston program welcomed some new players to the team this summer.

A veteran of both Playworks Baltimore and Detroit, Casey Kuzio took the reins of program director in July.

After a year of coordinating program at the Dever-McCormack K-8 School in Dorchester, Molly Smemo steps into a program manager role, joining the experienced trio of Amanda Drasny, Dominique Wilkins and Rebeca Pazo. Rounding out the office team is program associate Karleen Herbst, a recent graduate of Bentley University.

Working together to manage and support 32 school partnerships, the program team finally complete when our 33 coaches joined us in late August. The enthusiasm and energy among program coordinators has been palpable as we kick off the school year and bring healthy, meaningful play to over 15,000 students every day.
