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 day. Playworks is the only nonprofit organization in the country to send trained, full-time coaches to low-income, urban schools, where they transform recess and play into a positive experience that helps kids and teachers get the most out of every learning opportunity. Our coaches introduce classic games that are disappearing from schoolyards as well as new games designed to build leadership and foster teamwork. When Playworks partners with a school, kids are more physically active, and they return to class focused and ready learn.
Playworks is currently operating in 23 cities across the nation, serving 420 schools and 185,000 students daily. 2013-14 represents Playworks’ third year in Wisconsin; we have grown to 12 schools and serve over 8,300 students daily with plenty of school district and community support to continue growing in the future. Join us in the movement!
