Play Ambassadors

Our Play Ambassadors PLAY an important role in the dissemination of knowledge about the Value of Play.  Since our founding in 2009, the US Play Coalition has grown exponentially.  Growth of our network relies on the passion our ambassadors share via word of mouth, social media learning opportunities such as #WePlayChat, and email shares. Our Play Ambassadors are making a tremendous difference in leading the voice on the value of play. Next time you run into them, ask them how you can be involved too.  Learn more about the Play Ambassador program by emailing uspcplayambassador@gmail.com
