AmeriCorps Week

Playworks New York/New Jersey celebrates all of our AmeriCorps Members!

Our Corps members have contributed their time, their energy, their resources and most importantly, their love.

Throughout the year, we have created over 400 care packages for military vets and families. We have cleaned parks, donated over 300 coats to people in need and facilitated play for our communities.

Our AmeriCorps members continue to operate in excellence and they are the pillar of our region.

We are proud to congratulate Coaches Niya, Latoya, Zok, Kevin, Peter, Monique, Tim, Marquis, Sasha, Greg, Blake, Chris, Damari, Naomi, Molly, and Floyd. Thank you for your service!
