On Wednesday, February 28, over 500 guests joined PASE for our 2024 PASEsetter Awards Benefit, celebrating those who have given outstanding service and leadership to our city’s youth.

The event raised over $875,000, allowing PASE to promote and support high-quality afterschool programs throughout the city.

NYC Youth Impacted

PASE believes all kids deserve a safe, nurturing space during out-of-school time where they have opportunities to explore their passions while connecting with and learning from caring adults. We exist to improve the quality of afterschool programs for children and teens living in poverty.
