Mission

To improve the health and well-being of children by increasing opportunities for physical activity and safe, meaningful play.

Playworks is a national nonprofit that reduces playground bullying and conflicts and improves school climate through fun, healthy, inclusive games and physical activity.

 

Playworks’ upstream and root cause approach to enhancing school climates creates a school environment where kids thrive and have more positive opportunities for engagement. Playworks programming ignites positive social, emotional and academic development, and in turn, decreases bullying and improves learning. Playworks engages all children at each school at recess and throughout the entire school day, after school and evening developmental sports leagues.

 

Playworks will be celebrating our fifth year in the Pacific Northwest, where it has grown to serve more than 80 schools across the area through a combination of training and direct service at 13 low income schools providing 5,500 students with safe and inclusive play daily, improving school climate and transforming the educational environment.  Please visit our website for more information on how to get involved:  http://www.playworks.org/portland.
