Playworks Los Angeles
453 South Spring Street, Suite 1227
Los Angeles, CA
DescriptionPlayworks Southern California is seeking a Community Outreach Intern to assist in the managing and growth of our community presence and awareness.
Playworks is a national nonprofit that provides safe, healthy play and physical activity to low-income schools in the city, helping create a positive environment for learning and teaching. Playworks maximizes the value of recess, making play a part of every day ultimately transforming the learning environment for hundreds of schools across the country. We put trained adults on the playground to introduce classic games that are disappearing from schoolyards, like kickball and four-square, as well as new games designed to build leadership and foster teamwork. When Playworks partners with a school, kids are more physically active and they return to class focused and ready learn so the whole school day goes better. Playworks' track record of success across the country has attracted multi-million dollar investments from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, AmeriCorps and private philanthropists.
