  1. Updates
During the May 2023 National Board of Directors meeting in Oakland, CA, the board gathered to strategize, plan, and experience the power of play firsthand.

Board members and Playworks teammates visited a local community school where they met with Coach Christina and her Junior Coaches, learned about the school’s partnership with Playworks, and jumped into recess games with students. Through games of volleyball, hockey, Switch, Flies & Spiders, and even hula hooping, kids and adults alike enjoyed a day of play together.
