2018 Post-Summit Workshop Day

The Post-Summit Workshop is designed for community leaders who want to use Project Play’s proven strategies to grow access to sports for youth at the local level. Attendees will be the first to be introduced to Project Play's forthcoming digital Community Action Toolkits. Workshop-style sessions led by the Aspen Institute and other experts will guide attendees through exercises to learn how to measure the state of play in their communities and mobilize leaders around growing access to early positive sports experiences for all kids, regardless of zip code or ability.
