Farewell to our 2015-2016 AmeriCorps Coaches

  1. Updates

We are very grateful for the incredible coaches that served for a year of AmeriCorps with us throughout the 2015-2016 school year. These ten wonderful coaches served a combined total of 17,365 hours in 10 months.

We are extremely proud of all of their hard work and the incredible impact they had on over 10,000 students this year. Every day they helped create a safe and meaningful environment for their students, engaged with teachers, and collected a bajillion high fives from laughing kids. Our great coaches and the partnerships they created at their schools helped us make an incredible impact this year.

While we are sad to see them leave, we know they are off to accomplish amazing things in the future!

Playworks WI is currently hiring for the 2016-2017 AmeriCorps coach position. We offer full benefits, childcare, an education award, and a generous AmeriCorps living stipend. If you love working with children, being part of a supportive team, and are looking for an excellent opportunity to serve a community and grow as a professional, apply today.
