Workshop Day

For the first time, the Project Play Summit expanded to two days. The optional second day, hosted at the Aspen Institute’s headquarters, was designed for community leaders who want to use Project Play’s proven strategies to grow access to sports for youth at the local level. Through workshop-style sessions led by Aspen Institute and other experts, attendees gained tools and resources to measure the state of play in their communities and apply the five conditions of collective impact.
