The Playworks Mission: To improve the health and well being of children by increasing opportunities for physical activity and safe, meaningful play. For more information: www.playworks.org
Recess Time: Armed with whistles, hi-5s, balls, cones, jump ropes and enthusiasm, Playworks coaches like Coach Vee come armed with recess armor ready to engage kids in safe inclusive game play. Playworks coaches teach conflict resolution skills, organize games, and have fun. In return the school gains much needed academic time, bullying is reduced, and students are learning much needed core values such as respect, inclusion, and how to create healthy relationships with their peers.
