Exploration of a Collaboration Between Like-Missioned After School Programs

New York State Afterschool Network (NYSAN) and AfterSchool Works! New York (ASW) are state-wide organizations working to increase afterschool access and quality in New York State.  Several board members overlap both organizations and they very work closely together.  In 2014, NYSAN and AWS began exploring how they might structure a collaboration and benefit from their complementary expertise. The SeaChange-Lodestar fund for Nonprofit Collaboration funded a portion of the consulting fees.
