The Afterschool Exchange

Afterschool Exchange is an in-person and online project that aims to make the educational resources of public television available and useful to afterschool staff. Find out more about the mission and history of the Afterschool Exchange!



The Events

Afterschool Exchange events are free, one-day conferences in which afterschool staff come together to learn about fun, educational activities -- and the teaching strategies that best support afterschool learning. The events provide afterschool staff with resources to support students, but they also provide staff with a community through which they can develop partnerships and improve their programs. Read more about our events!



The Web Site

In order to bring the resources and networking opportunities of the Afterschool Exchange to more members of the afterschool community, Thirteen/WNET New York developed this Web site, which offers afterschool staff access to the educational resources of public television. The site offers a number of features:

Search - a searchable database with information about both afterschool programs and public television stations' afterschool education resources

Activities & Tips - a directory of activities presented at New York-area Afterschool Exchange events - and implementation tips recommended by our afterschool staff participants.

Students' Take - a section that supports and publishes our Students' Take projects.

Events - an invitation to Thirteen/WNET New York's upcoming free Afterschool Exchange events, including registration forms and sample agendas. This section also includes an archive of past events, where users can see pictures of Afterschool Exchange in action and read a summary of the proceedings.

About - an explanation of the goals and efforts of Thirteen's Afterschool Exchange project.



Students' Take

Students' Take provides afterschool students with resources and publication space so that they can express themselves online in their own Web sites. This project originally appeared on Ed Online, Thirteen/WNET New York's free online service for educators, but now is fully integrated with the Afterschool Exchange project.
