Indiana University Health is bringing in Playworks Indiana for an interactive and fun professional development training entitled “Power of Play”. The training introduces the importance of play and lays the foundation for creating a safe, healthy, and respectful environment for youth. With Playworks Power of Play you and your staff will possess the introductory tools needed to create safe and inclusive play opportunities for all students. The training will engage you in innovative game play ideas that help “level the playing field” to address the issue of more athletic campers participating while others aren’t selected or sit out.
