Afterschool Recovery Plan

Recommendations to support school-aged children in New York

The COVID-19 pandemic has created extraordinary circumstances for many children and families across the nation. In addition to this health crisis, many families also face the threat of mass unemployment and an exacerbation of racial and economic disparities, highlighting the significant inequities that communities of color and low-income communities experience. The losses and accompanying grief are shattering, the stability and economic security of millions of families has been undermined, and many of our children — our most precious resource — have been shaken or traumatized. Our country and state will emerge from COVID-19 in a different place. As we emerge from this crisis, our priority must be to rebuild the resilience and hope of our children for the future. Afterschool and summer programs will help achieve this.

The Afterschool Recovery Plan: Recommendations to support school-aged children in New York was released on June 11, 2020.
