The New York State Network for Youth Success is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization. Our work is dependent on grants and donations that allow us to advocate effectively for New York’s children and families.

As the only statewide organization dedicated to increasing access to high-quality programs beyond the traditional classroom, we believe that ALL youth deserve the right to participate in expanded learning opportunities that support their success in school, college, work, and life.  We do this through educating the community on the value of expanded learning opportunities, offering high-quality professional development, and professionalizing the field.


Annual Fund: Unrestricted gifts are allocated to the Annual Fund which covers vital costs with no other source of support, including employee benefits, training, professional development, and overhead.
