New York State Afterschool Network After School Conferences

The New York State Afterschool Network began in 2001 as an advisory group to the New York State Education Department for the planning and implementation of the 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) program.  In 2003, this advisory group formally became the New York State Afterschool Network (NYSAN) with the support of funding from the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation and fiscal sponsorship from TASC (The After-School Corporation).

NYSAN is now part of a national network of 48 statewide networks supported by the Mott Foundation.  Since 2003, NYSAN has grown to be led by a 20-member Steering Committee  with nine affiliated regional networks and hundreds of participating partner organizations statewide.
