Partnership for After School Education

PASE's “Emerging Leaders in Nonprofit Management: A Course for Youth Program Professionals" is a comprehensive, twelve-session nonprofit management course which provides training to future executive leaders in NYC’s afterschool field, offered in partnership with the Baruch College Austin W. Marxe School of Public and International Affairs.

For the past decade, PASE’s course has offered lectures and practical discussions that merge the talents and experiences of Baruch’s professors with insights from seasoned nonprofit professionals from the PASE community. Class sessions provide a strong theoretical base for understanding issues facing nonprofits, while offering practical ways to improve critical aspects of management, including: strategic planning; financial management; human resources; fundraising; advocacy; board relations; and evaluation, among other topics. The Emerging Leaders course has yielded diverse, and uniformly positive, results for its over 200 alumni, including career advancement and increased long-term commitment to the youth-serving community.
