The Florida After School Alliance (FASA) is a voice for quality for school programs and the professionals who lead them. FASA strives to promote national standards and accreditation for after school programs. FASA also works with statewide policy advisory groups that affect licensing, funding, professional development and higher education, and workforce development. FASA’s advocacy efforts help to educate the public and elected officials about the benefits of quality programs for children and youth during out-of-school time and the vital contribution after school professionals make to Florida’s families.

The FASA Mission

The mission of FASA is to provide leadership, to support professionals and to promote quality programs for children and youth during out-of-school hours. To accomplish its mission, FASA provides training, advocacy, and networking opportunities for after school professionals throughout Florida.

Many children in Florida spend as much time in year round after school programs as they do in school. Time spent in these programs offers children opportunities for growth, development, academic support, enrichment, recreation and socialization.
