COVID-19 is a global pandemic the likes of which have not been seen in over a hundred years. For at-risk children in marginalized communities, this has cut off a critical lifeline – the power of play. Play through the sports and the arts is a key tool in childhood development; supporting their physical, mental, and social well-being. That’s what the Sports Creative is all about; so far we have trained 21 coaches who offer the power of play to over 700 children & youth. In March all of our programs went into lockdown.
Join us for this informal & interactive happy hour, share stories from your community, hear stories from ours, and discuss how we can all support hope & resilience through the power of play.
