Playce Partners

Our 25 in 5 Playce Partners work alongside KABOOM! and communities to end playspace inequity across systems for greater impact.

We are building a coalition of 25 municipal agencies (school districts, parks and recreation departments, housing systems, etc.) and networks of nonprofit partners who are committed to addressing the urgent needs of kids. Playce Partners value public spaces designed with kids in mind, ensuring their experiences are playful, supportive of healthy childhoods, and provide clear avenues to kids to experience the full developmental benefits of having quality spaces to play. Playce Partners have a commitment to addressing racial equity and engaging with communities to ensure their voices are central to decision-making. Join our efforts to end playspace inequity across systems for greater impact.
