We believe in the power of play to bring out the best in every kid. We create a place for every kid on the playground to feel included, be active, and build valuable social and emotional skills. 

Students with strong social and emotional skills in elementary school are twice as likely to graduate from college and 46% more likely to have a full-time job by age 25 than their peers.   


Funds raised will help ensure 150,000 kids in 249 elementary schools in the 2018-2019 school year learn vital social/emotional skills to succeed in school and in life.
