In hundreds of schools around the country, our Playworks AmeriCorps Coaches are hard at work. Our high-energy, trained rock stars make the most of every minute to build a healthy school community through play.
Play provides an unparalleled opportunity to foster the physical, social, and emotional development of our kids. Since 1996, the Playworks Coach program has worked on-site with low-income schools, engineering a powerful system of play that is making a daily difference where it is most needed. With energy and imagination, high fives and hula hoops, Playworks builds play and physical activity into a positive school environment, offering opportunities throughout the entire day.
