“The images and numbers included in this annual report tell a very important story about how our programs transform school culture and help kids feel happy and safe at school. But the bigger idea that I’d like you to consider in exploring our annual report is that the pursuit of happiness is actually a really big deal.” - Jill Vialet.

Meet Coach CiCi, one of our Playworks Maryland AmeriCorps members. Coach CiCi is always smiling. She arrives extra early to greet each student with a bright, “Good morning!” And at the end of every day, Coach is at the doors again to say, “Good bye! Make good choices!”  When Coach discovered that some kindergartners were going home alone, she started a walking group and walks them home, greeting the neighbors with her bright smile.
