Job Posting: Play Worker
New York City’s plans to build a new series of playgrounds with trained play workers will provide the kiddies with an innovative approach to play—one that nurtures imagination, fantasy with among other things, interactive moveable parts. Their job: show the kids how to use the pulleys, ramps, waterslides, etc. on the new playgrounds.
The idea is to give children more training in social interaction and to nurture their imaginations through these fantastic new playgrounds.
As far as you listless college-aged young adults are concerned, however, there is now a job called a play worker, and it will train and pay you to facilitate safe and stimulating playtime. So, grab your imaginary pirate hats and hop on the ship. Ship sails in May!
