Playworks’ vision is that one day every child in America will get to play - every day. We create a place for every kid on the playground, a place where every kid belongs, has fun and is part of the game.
Here in Washington, DC, Playworks is making schools healthier, happier places for over 6,000 kids every day in 18 public elementary schools.
We send full-time program coordinators, called coaches, into low-income schools to focus on play as a learning opportunity. Coaches create energetic, fun environments at recess and throughout the school day, teaching essential life skills such as teamwork, conflict resolution, empathy, and fair play.
Playworks Training provides schools and communities everywhere with the tools to create a fun and safe place on the playground for every kid.

-Reduce bullying, creating schools that are safe, respectful, and conducive to learning;
-Build a community of people devoted to giving all kids access to safe, inclusive, healthy play and physical activity.
