Playworks is the only nonprofit organization in the country to send trained, full-time coaches to low-income 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 run research evidence-based programming that reduces bullying, increases physical activity, improves classroom focus and promotes social-emotional well-being throughout the school environment.
