Inspiring, Preparing, Supporting: A Summit on Afterschool, Summer, and Expanded Learning Opportunities for New York’s Students
The Network for Youth Success (NYSAN at the time) convened a group of well over 150 legislators, afterschool and summer leaders, educators, funders, regulators, and community stakeholders for Inspiring, Preparing, Supporting on January 14th, 2014 at the Empire State Concourse in Albany. An impressive array of elected officials, educators, and business and law enforcement leaders spoke about the impact of afterschool programs on their lives, the lives of the children and families they work with, and their communities.

Orange Shirt Day (September 30th) is a day when we honor the Indigenous children who were sent away to residential schools in Canada and learn more about the history of those schools.Residential schools were church-run schools where approximately 150,000 Métis, Inuit and First Nations children were sent between the 1860s and the 1990s. The schools harmed Indigenous children by removing them from their families, forcing them to speak English or French instead of their ancestral languages, disconnecting them from their culture and traditions and forcing them to adopt Christianity in order to assimilate into Canadian society. The government has since acknowledged that this approach was wrong, cruel and ineffective, and offered an official apology to the Indigenous people of Canada in 2008.www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gs0iwY6YjSk...
