Formerly the New York State School-Age Care Coalition, AfterSchool Works!
New York is the official state affiliate of the National Afterschool Association
and serves as a non-profit membership association for afterschool professionals
in New York State.
Through an extensive network of intermediaries, training organizations
and child care resource and referral agencies, we provide information,
training, credentialing and support to afterschool professionals in order
to build high-quality, sustainable afterschool programs that meet the
needs of children, youth and their families.
Our association serves practitioners, policy makers, researchers, and
administrators representing all public, private, faith-based, school-based
and community-based sectors. Our members work in school age child care
programs, 21st Century Community Learning Centers, Boys and Girls Clubs,
YMCA’s, 4H, Parks and Recreation Departments, and other before school,
after school and summer programs.
