For thousands of children in New York City access to quality afterschool programming could be the difference between being a high performing student or just another urban statistic.
The numbers in New York State are staggering:
New York Edge provides high quality afterschool programs which have a proven track record of heightening academic achievement, improving social skills and creating a more confident, well-rounded student.
Each dollar spent on afterschool programs saves the taxpayer $3.00. Factoring in benefits from crime reduction, that same dollar investment increases to a savings of up to $12.00 resulting in millions of dollars saved by the city per year.
