ABOUT PLAY YOUR PART
Educational; check. Inspiring; check. Fun; check! Play Your Part is a free, schools engagement initiative that will harness your students’ innate leadership potential by using the transformative power of play to facilitate their learning, unite them with their peers across the world, and empower them as global citizens.
Right To Play delivers play-based educational programming to improve children’s lives around the world, and Play Your Part is our chance to share their inspiring stories here at home! We want students across Canada to understand not only the incredible impact that play is having in children’s lives globally, but also how they can be a part of that impact – because we believe that every student has the ability to create social change!
Through Play Your Part’s interactive Assembly and Workshop students will learn how to lead in their own schools and communities, and how to understand the positive impact their actions can have in others’ lives around the world.
Play Your Part is made possible thanks to the financial support of the Government of Canada through Global Affairs Canada. It is designed to teach students about the GREAT program and the value of play-based learning in delivering quality education globally. Launched in partnership with the Government of Canada in 2015, GREAT is currently active in eight countries: Ghana, Mozambique and Rwanda. The program uses Right To Play’s experiential learning methodology to build teacher capacity and remove barriers to education – especially for girls – with a goal of improving learning outcomes.
