Activating Empathy Through Play - Silicon Valley
 
"When Playworks came to our school, it changed Gabriel's world. From kindergarten to 4th grade, Gabriel was picked on and bullied . . . especially at recess. Then Playworks came to Castlemont School in Campbell, and Coach Michelle arrived. In a few days, with her gentle encouragement, Gabriel started playing . . . and rather than laughing and teasing him, the other kids were giving him high fives. Now he's motivated to go to school, to socialize and as a result, his grades have improved. Gabriel project reportread updates from the field
