Just Play Project creates time + space for children's right to play. Summer 2017, 1 lead playworker and 3 teen playworkers supported play for our 8-week FREE play ranging project summer program in Ithaca City parks. We provided free play opportunities for over 100 children, at no cost to children and families in need of summer care and leisure activities. Partnering with Ithaca Youth Bureau’s Youth Employment Services (YES!) - JPP hired and trained playworkers to work in public parks in Northside to support child-directed free play and create connections with neighborhood children. In Summer 2018, JPP is looking to grow by hiring two to four lead playworkers and expand summer programming to Wood Street Park in Southside/Titus Flats to reach more children, families, and community members.
