Opportunity Details

Children & Youth Education, Sports & Recreation

Age Minimum (with Adult): 18+, Minimum Age:18+

Play at Recess with Playworks (age 18+) *STW 2012*

The Playworks mission is to improve the health and well-being of children by increasing opportunities for physical activity and safe, meaningful play. Support this mission and join in the fun by helping to lead recess activities with Playworks!

Volunteers will get a first-hand look at how Playworks programs are enhancing recess for kids all over Portland. You'll play an active role on this project (e.g. wall ball, 4-square, tag, jump rope, etc.) so wear closed-toe shoes and comfortable clothing that you can move in and that you don't mind getting dirty.

Important: Because we'll be working directly with students and this project takes place on a school campus, all volunteers will be required to complete a background check (at no cost to you).

Note: Volunteers must be age 18+ to volunteer on this project.
