Join us on Tuesday, May 9, at the Ascent Lounge for a night of celebration as we mark 25 years of empowering young minds! In 1998, ExpandED Schools began building the largest city-funded afterschool system in the country, today serving New York City’s 1.1 million students in grades K–12 with more than 900 programs. A quarter century later, ExpandED continues to strengthen and grow this essential support for children, families, educators and communities through advocacy, research, program support, and innovation.

And we couldn’t have done it without you! Whether you join us for the celebration, contribute as a sponsor, or make a donation in honor of the anniversary, your support will help us continue to create more opportunities for young people to thrive in and out of the classroom.
