KaBoom! amplifyies the power of communities to build inspiring playspaces that spark unlimited opportunities for every kid, everywhere. Our mission: end playspace inequity. For good.
KABOOM! is the national non-profit that works to achieve playspace equity. Kids who don’t have access to play miss out on childhood and are denied critical opportunities to build physical, social and emotional health. And all too often, it more deeply affects communities of color. So we amplify the power of communities to build inspiring playspaces that spark unlimited opportunities for every kid, everywhere. KABOOM! has teamed up with partners to build or improve 17,000+ playspaces, engage more than 1.5 million community members and bring joy to more than 11 million kids.
A Partner in Play
KaBOOM! works with communities to build incredible, kid-designed playspaces that help give kids in every zip code the opportunity to thrive. Kids who don’t have access to play miss out on childhood and are denied critical opportunities to build physical, social and emotional health.
For more than two decades, we’ve teamed up with bold, inspiring partners and community members, starting with the kids themselves, to understand each neighborhood’s unique aspirations. Then we build incredible places to play, inspired by their design, courage and leadership.
Over the last 23 years, we’ve built or improved 17,000+ playspaces, engaged more than 1.5 million community members and brought joy to over 10 million kids. As we look to the future, we’ll continue our efforts to build collective action and community opportunity, spark hope and enable kids to reach their full potential. And we promise that we won’t stop until we put an end to playspace inequity. For good
