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: 
  • Afterschool and Summer Meals: NJSACC’s work in this area has greatly expanded thanks to funding from the National League of Cities and Walmart Foundation. NJSACC also provides 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.

  • NJSACC offers on-line professional development workshops that can be done from the comfort of your own home. These trainings are designed to help afterschool professionals complete annual training requirements.

  • Special initiatives include: Celebrate Afterschool! Outdoors in the Garden State, Full STEM Ahead, At Risk Meals Program, Summer Food Service Program, 21st Century Community Learning Center Technical Assistance Grant, Afterschool CARES, Quality Standards, Supporting Student Success, and Energizing Afterschool Partnership
