What We Do
Expanding. Engaging. Enriching. Thriving.
ExpandED was founded in 1998 to pioneer a system of afterschool that would become part of the public fabric of New York City. Today, New York City has the largest city-funded afterschool system in the country, with more than 900 youth-serving programs serving New York City’s 1.1 million students in K–12. Now in its third decade, ExpandED seeks to strengthen and grow this essential support for children, families, and communities through advocacy, research, program support, and innovation.
