Playworks Education Energized


Playworks’ mission is to improve the health and well-being of children by increasing opportunities for physical activity and safe, meaningful play.


Playworks helps kids stay active and build valuable social and emotional skills through play. The organization provides a continuum of services to provide support for schools, educators, and youth professionals to sustain Playworks strategies and programs over time so that partners are not reliant on intensive interventions long-term. Current services include direct services of Coach and TeamUp, and Playworks Pro. Playworks also provides consultation and professional development and facilitation services for school and youth-serving organizations.
