Playworks creates a place for every kid on the playground -- a place where every kid belongs, contributes and is part of the game. It doesn't matter if they have never played a game or thrown a ball before. We create a place that is safe and welcoming, where every kid feels that sense of belonging that connects them more to their school and community. Playworks for every kid.
"As an organization committed to getting students excited about school at an early age by creating a place for every kid on the playground, Playworks is honored to be part of American Graduate Day. It is gratifying to be part of a full day committed to examining every opportunity to support our students -- before, during and after the bells." - Jill Vialet, Founder and CEO, Playworks
