New Jersey School-Age Care Coalition

The New Jersey School-Age Care Coalition (NJSACC) promotes and supports the development, continuity and expansion of quality programs for children and youth during out-of-school time (OST). As NJ's Statewide Afterschool Network, NJSACC works to build lasting public support for quality afterschool programs across New Jersey.

Current Projects and Initiatives: 
  • Statewide Training and Technical assistance (contract with NJ Department of Human Services) to afterschool programs statewide.  

  • 21st CCLC Training and Technical Assistance (contract with NJ Department of Education): NJSACC provides training and TA to NJ’s 50 21st CCLC grantees.

  • Training and Technical Assistance (grant from Fund for Newark’s Future): NJSACC provides training, TA and data collection and analysis services to Newark Public School’s system of afterschool programming.

  • Afterschool and Summer Meals: Our work in this area has greatly expanded thanks to funding from the National League of Cities and Walmart Foundation. In partnership with the Afterschool Alliance, NJSACC is hosting two AmeriCorps VISTA members to work on expanding afterschool and summer meals in Newark and Jersey City, NJ. We also provide technical assistance to programs statewide. With support from the Walmart Foundation, NJSACC offered a competitive mini-grant program to help afterschool programs with “startup costs” to becoming a CACFP sponsor.
