What are the qualities of an educated person? This video shows they're the same as those of a child enrolled at a quality afterschool program. Through interviews with youth and afterschool professionals, the diverse nature of learning and how important life skills are developed through their programs become readily apparent. Children who attend these programs also attend school more regularly, do better on tests, and develop crucial 21st Century skills such as critical thinking, creativity, team work, technological literacy and more.
The Partnership for After School Education (PASE) is the only organization to connect the more than 1600 afterschool organizations in New York City. PASE provides training, on-site consultations, capacity building, conferences & forums, publications and advocacy for the afterschool field. By meeting organizations at their level, PASE works with them to build stronger programs and the opportunities to educate young people in all of the aspects of their healthy development.
