Partnership for After School Education


The Partnership for After School Education (PASE) is a child-focused organization that promotes and supports quality afterschool programs, particularly those serving young people from underserved communities.


PASE was formed in 1993 to professionalize the afterschool community in New York City so that youth-serving professionals could deliver consistent, high-quality programming to young people and meet the fundamental needs of their communities.

Over the past 25 years, PASE has helped over 50,000 dedicated professionals working in afterschool programs to gain and develop the skills they need to provide high-quality, content-rich programmatic experiences to youth in out-of-school time, building a stronger and more resilient afterschool field.

Over 1,000,000 kids have been impacted by PASE-trained afterschool professionals – and that number continues to grow every day.
