Playworks is a national nonprofit organization that
supports learning by providing safe, healthy and inclusive play and
physical activity to schools at recess and throughout the entire school
The Playworks Mission: To improve the health and well-being of
children by increasing opportunities for physical activity and safe,
Building Play as a Cornerstone of the School Day
"Playworks has helped our students become more positive and encouraging to their peers during recess and game times."
Play provides an unparalleled opportunity to foster the physical,
social and emotional development of our kids. Since 1996, Playworks has
worked on-site exclusively 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, beginning
before the first bell rings and continuing until well after the last
has silenced. Our work focuses on five key areas:
Recess Time Armed with balls, cones, jump ropes and enthusiasm,
Playworks coaches take to the blacktop or hardwood every recess, taking
advantage of the amazing teaching and learning opportunities inherent in
recess and bringing healthy, inclusive play that moves kids off the
sidelines and engages them in the action.
Leadership Development We build play into leadership through the
Playworks Junior Coach program, which encourages teams of students to
work together to learn games, fair play and positive conflict resolution
and to teach these skills and lessons appropriately to their
Class Game Time Between recess bells, Playworks coaches
establish a weekly schedule of class game time activities, providing an
inclusive, consciously cooperative approach to introducing sports and
physical activity to children. Kids learn basic sports, playground and
cooperative games, as well as lessons on physical health and fitness and
principals of violence prevention and safety.
Interscholastic/Developmental Sports Leagues Playworks builds
empathy and teamwork through our interscholastic/developmental sports
leagues, which teach students the skills of games like basketball,
volleyball and soccer. In many cases, these Playworks leagues provide
opportunities that students may not otherwise have.
Out-of-School Time Programs Finally, Playworks builds play into
the fabric of the community with our out-of-school time programs, which
bring kids together before or after the bells each day to focus on
learning and growing. These programs provide students with a solid
combination of scholastic support, engaging physical activities and
group projects within a consistent community.
