Playworks is a national nonprofit organization that:
- improves school climate
- reduces bullying and
- increases student engagement
They are the only organization in the country to send enthusiastic, trained adult program coordinators into low-income schools to focus on play as a learning opportunity. Playworks creates energetic, fun environments at recess and throughout the school day that encourage students to engage with their peers and teach them essential life skills such as teamwork, conflict resolution, empathy and fair play.
During the 2014-15 school year, Playworks serves over 14,000 students across Boston, Cambridge, & Lawrence, using the power of play to to bring out the best in every kid. Playworks ensures students are safe and included in areas of Boston that are generally considered dangerous and high-risk. Please consider donating in support of this great cause. Thank you and play on!
