What We Do

Within Trying Together, we have two initiatives that projects on this platform will be most helpful. The Playful Pittsburgh Collaborative is a group of organizations dedicated to advancing the importance of play in the lives of children, families and communities in the Pittsburgh region by: (1) Raising awareness that play is a critical element in the lives of people of all ages, (2) Educating decision-makers (from parents to legislators) in our region so that their choices support access to play for all people and (3) Modeling (and inspiring) through various activities the actions we hope our broader community will take in their daily lives. In addition, the Recess Advocacy Team is a group of organizations dedicated to health, wellness, education, and play with a focus on recess practices and policies in pre-k through sixth grade in Allegheny County.
