Inspiring, Preparing, Supporting: A Summit on Afterschool, Summer, and Expanded Learning Opportunities for New York’s Students

New York State Afterschool Network (NYSAN) is a public-private partnership of organizations throughout the state dedicated to building a youth-serving system that increases the quality and availability of afterschool and expanded learning programs.

NYSAN defines "afterschool" broadly to include all programs that provide support for young people’s intellectual, social, emotional, and physical development outside the traditional school day. These programs include those that serve youth in kindergarten through 12th grade, take place in schools and/or in community-based settings, and occur both before and after school, and during weekends, holidays, and summer breaks.

NYSAN convenes partners and coordinates them around a common agenda focused on partnership development, policy development, and capacity building.  The network connects practice with policy across a broad range of state, regional, and local partners that represent the afterschool, expanded learning, and youth development fields broadly. Stakeholders, allies, and partners include public agency leadership, elected officials, policymakers, program providers, community members, leaders from the nonprofit sector, advocates and advocacy groups, members of the philanthropic community, intermediary organizations, capacity building providers, and researchers.
