The Partnership for After School Education’s annual conference Framing Our Future: Emerging Trends and Opportunities for Afterschool is on Tuesday, July 23, 2019 at Baruch College, Vertical Campus.
This signature citywide event celebrates the impact of the field on youth and families and promotes innovation and research to sustain this work. We expect over 200 participants including Executive Directors and supervisors from youth-serving community-based agencies, funders, colleagues in higher education, policy makers, and educators.
As we near the start of a new decade, with impending change in city leadership, the focus of our 2019 conference is on those societal conditions and emerging trends impacting New York City and in turn how this impacts organizations working with communities and fulfilling their mission.
