Life is Good Playmaker Training
The Life is Good Kids Foundation is holding its first Philadelphia Playmaker training/retreat on August 6 & 7, 2011. This innovative program is for teachers who work with children ages of 3 and 6 who live in poverty and/or have experienced the trauma of violence, loss or illness. Playmakers will learn how to use the power of joyful play to heal and strengthen the children in their care. Selected teachers will also receive full scholarships to attend the Playmaker training. For more information or to apply, visit LifeisGood.com/Playmakers. Your donation will help us fund teacher scholarships and spread the joy to kids in need.
