Adults Making an Impact

At Playworks, caring adults make a big difference to the children attending our schools. We are so grateful to individuals and corporate groups who come out to volunteer with us, who role model for children, making a big impression and understanding the remarkable power of play. Children at schools often don't have stable adults in their lives, and knowing someone cares about them is very important. Adults are often asked if they will come back again and when, and children sometimes shout them out for their awesomeness!! 

Adults have also painted murals and school playgrounds. When the children see the work that the adults have done for them, a feeling of happiness often overcomes them. We are grateful for the adults who support Playworks!
