What We Offer

We offer a supportive community grounded in playwork and a training program to grow the playwork and adventure play movement in the US. 


We are prioritizing those who helped develop it further, and with whom we already have a substantial professional relationship.  We also looked for a diversity of provision (such as an adventure playground, pop-ups, and/or after-school programs), as well as depth of community engagement or fitness to local environment.  We also thought very carefully about senior staff at each project, and their commitment to this field over time
