Thanks to our partners, we’re closer than ever to achieving our goal of reaching 200,000 students at 400 schools in our region by 2020.

Playworks’ partners transform schools by providing crucial support to create safe, inclusive environments at recess and throughout the school day. Together, we strengthen the social, emotional and physical development of our children, empowering them to thrive. Support levels range from one-time gifts, sponsoring one of our interscholastic developmental sports leagues or school-wide involvement to regional support and even national initiatives.
