For families everywhere, afterschool is not optional. Out-of-school time learning is not a luxury. Whether providing safe space while a parent works, enabling academic success through activities linked to school-day learning, or developing critical 21st century skills through the arts, sports, and more, afterschool programs are an essential part of the education equation:

PASE is here to ensure that the afterschool part of that equation is of high quality and is available to all youth.

What does PASE do?

PASE accomplishes its mission by building the capacity of individual afterschool staff, youth-serving organizations, and the field as a whole, all with the goal of increasing the availability of quality services to youth in out of school time.

The Partnership for After School Education (PASE):
