This description of Herb Sturz's work was prepared when Herb Sturz was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2009.
Herb Sturz - with support from the Open Society Institute -has helped create a new model for after-school care that has redefined the way after-school care is delivered, funded, and institutionalized as an essential service for children and their families in New York City and beyond. This after-school model is distinguishable by its diverse set of stakeholders, comprehensive programming and reliable cross-sector funding which has produced a high-quality, sustainable and universal system of K-12 after-school programs.
