Welcome to the career page of Right To Play!
We are a global organization committed to improving the lives of children and youth affected by conflict, disease and poverty. Established in 2000, we have pioneered a unique play-based approach to learning and development which focuses on quality education, life skills, health, gender equality, child protection and building peaceful communities. We operate in over 20 countries, advocating for children’s rights and transforming the lives of more than one million children each week using play and sports, both inside and outside of the classroom.
We are inspired by the essence of play, where everything is possible and children are infused with the belief that they can be whatever they imagine. Our goal is to unlock this potential in every child we reach and to empower them with the confidence, education and life skills they need to fulfill it. With a million children in our programs offering a million chances to play, teach and learn, we ensure children’s futures are shaped by their opportunities, not by their challenges. A holistic, quality education, teaching both formal curriculum and life skills is key to this transformation. It’s why our play-based learning methodology is designed to get children into school, fully engaged in their learning and keep them coming back. We Care, We Do, We Commit, We Play, We Are a Team for more. For many of the girls in our programs, the struggle is immense. They fight to attend and stay in school, to be treated as equals with dignity and respect, to participate inside and outside the classroom, to be accepted and safe and to make their own choices about their bodies and futures. We are determined to dismantle these barriers so that all of the children we reach can discover the promise and the power of their own possibility. We pledge to continue to innovate, explore and develop our work so that the children in our programs can grow stronger, make positive and healthy choices and become more resilient. Our goal is to see all children become productive leaders in their families, communities and countries.
