My work: redefining the way after-school care works as an essential support to children and families.
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.
