The Providence After School Alliance (PASA) is working to expand and improve after-school, summer, and other expanded learning opportunities for the youth of Providence.
In 2004, Providence established the Providence After School Alliance (PASA) as a public/private partnership to increase access to quality after-school programming for the young people of the city, starting with middle school age youth. In the last eight years, PASA has grown exponentially to includeÂ two primary initiatives that it collaborates with the city of Providence and the local community to build, operate, and support: the AfterZone for middle school youth, and the Hub for high school youth.
Since 2005, PASA has facilitated after-school and summer programming for over 7,000 over Providence Middle and High School students! Currently, PASA can support 40% of Providence Middle School students. PASA is holding a Crowdrise fundraiser to help achieve their goal to support 100% of the Providence Middle School students.
