Playworks Education Energized
Commission AmeriCorps State FY 2012
Playworks is a national nonprofit that improves the health and well-being of children by increasing opportunities for physical activity and safe, meaningful play at schools during recess, throughout the school day and beyond. Playworks Metro Boston is uniquely positioned to leverage the talent, passion and commitment of AmeriCorps members to positively impact the healthy development of thousands of Massachusetts' most vulnerable young people. Specifically, Playworks will partner with the Massachusetts Service Alliance (MSA) to place 18 full-time AmeriCorps members in 18 low-income elementary schools across the metro Boston region to deliver a comprehensive in and out-of-school physical activity based program.
