Train as a Play Ambassador

Are you, or do you want to become, a “human swiss army knife” that can work the heart of north-central Calgary to create change through spontaneous play?

Over the next 4 years we will be offering free Play Ambassador Training to more than 300 volunteers, professionals and community members.

Children spend most of their time in structured, adult-directed activities, despite the mounting evidence in support of unstructured, child-directed play. What is child-directed play? How do you structure un-structured activities? How do you facilitate child led activities? How do you support children in their exploration of risk in a landscape of risk-aversion? At the Vivo Play Ambassador training, we provide an opportunity to learn about all of these things through an experiential, inquiry based approach designed to give you the knowledge you need to succeed while making an impact on your community.
