Playworks

Founded in 1996 at two California schools with a single program, Playworks now provides a menu of unique direct service, professional development, and digital tools that grow children’s social and emotional skills and help schools sustain impact independently for long-term change.

Playworks simultaneously engages children in vigorous physical activity and teaches social-emotional skills through play, improving kids’ outcomes in both the immediate and long term. Playworks Coach and TeamUp are delivered primarily to elementary-age children daily during the school year.  
 
Over 3,000 schools across the US have experienced Playworks to date.
