Nominate an Outstanding Afterschool Educator – deadline December 6, 2013
On Thursday February 27, 2014 at Cipriani’s 42nd St. in New York City, PASE will host its annual PASEsetter Awards, honoring five afterschool educators whose commitment, energy and creativity have had an indelible impact on the children and youth of New York City.
Award recipients will receive a crystal award and a $5,000 Cash Award for their agency, as well as acknowledgement at a pre-awards night reception, a feature article and photograph on the PASE website.
What a night for the youth of New York City. On Thursday, February 28, 2013, we held our 20th Anniversary PASEsetters awards dinner and benefit. Over 600 guests helped us celebrate and over $1 million was raised to continue PASE’s mission of promoting and supporting programs, like those of this year’s PASEsetters, to ensure that youth of NYC have access to the high quality afterschool programs they deserve.
Congratulations to the 2013 PASEsetter Award winners & Afterschool Champions!
