Schools Out Make It Count! Banner


The Network for Youth Success is dedicated to building a youth-serving system that increases the quality and availability of afterschool and expanded learning programs across New York. Our annual conference, Schools Out! Make it Count!, is the one of the largest training and networking events for afterschool and expanded learning program providers in the state. 

The Power of Afterschool & Expanded Learning 
We support all programs that promote young people’s intellectual, social, emotional, and physical development outside the traditional school day. These programs include those that serve youth in kindergarten through 12th grade, take place in schools and/or in community-based settings, and occur before and after school, during weekends, holidays, and summer breaks, or during the school day through partnerships with community organizations.
