Animated Short Shares the Power of Play

Playworks Northern California and BRIDGEGOOD come together to create an animated short highlighting the power of play!

The video brings to life a story from the field of a student at a Playworks school in the East Bay area through brilliantly animated characters. The voice over features none other than a Playworks Junior Coach! We are grateful to BRIDGEGOOD, a member of RealTime Oakland,  for donating their time and skill.
