Play 2 Progress
We are founded under 3 core beliefs:
applying the science of child development can give all kids a boost
play is the foundation of development
Play is at the core of child development, providing children with an array of learning opportunities. At Play 2 Progress, we create both individualized and group enrichment opportunities in a nurturing, safe, and fun environment where children can flourish. Individual sessions are custom-designed to help kids reach their unique learning goals through effective programs disguised as play sessions. Group sessions are also custom-designed for learning goals – and the group provides opportunities to teach children how to respond to emotions, work effectively in a team, communicate needs and build friendships.
it takes a village
Play 2 Progress all started with a simple idea.
Allie was finishing her occupational therapy clinicals in Chicago (while living on her best friend's couch) when she came home one day frustrated with the quality of toys available on the market to use in her sessions. There had to be a way to fix it.

The internship will consist of two primary responsibilities:
1) To learn and effectively communicate how small and medium-sized companies can join and set science-based emission reduction targets by:
a. By reviewing the Beginners Guide to Emission Reporting, reading the Foundations For Science-Based Net-Zero Target Setting In The Corporate Sector, and participating in the UN Global Compact Academy E-learning Course on Setting Science-Based Targets to Achieve Net-Zero
b. Learning about the SME Climate Commitment, the minimum criteria required for participation in the Race to Zero campaign, and how businesses can develop a climate action strategy by reading the The 1.5°C Business Playbook

The goal of the event will be to connect with the broader community and raise awareness regarding the importance of utilizing a science-based approach to address and mitigate the effects of climate change.
This is a great opportunity for a creative, out-going, community-orientated individual interested in sustainability and connecting with local organizations to foster corporate climate action.
The ideal candidate is organized, comfortable engaging with and speaking to the public, and is eager to learn and execute ideas that are in line with the company’s long-term vision of harnessing trade to foster sustainable communities.

What are ‘science-based targets’?
Science-based targets provide a clearly-defined pathway for companies to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, helping prevent the worst impacts of climate change and future-proof business growth. Targets are considered ‘science-based’ if they are in line with what the latest climate science deems necessary to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement – limiting global warming to well-below 2°C above pre-industrial levels and pursuing efforts to limit warming to 1.5°C.
What is the purpose of the initiative?
The Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) mobilizes the private sector to take urgent climate action. By guiding companies in science-based target setting, SBTi is enabling the private sector to tackle global warming while seizing the benefits and boosting their competitiveness in the transition to a zero-carbon economy. The SBTi’s vision is for science-based target setting to become the new normal, creating a thriving economy in harmony with the natural world that sustains us all.
