About Us


The mission of FASA is to provide leadership, to support professionals and to promote quality programs for children and youth during out-of-school hours. To accomplish its mission, FASA provides training, advocacy, and networking opportunities for after school professionals throughout Florida.


Since 1988, FASA has hosted annual statewide conferences to support out-of-school programs, professionals, and organizations. FASA has empowered over 5,000 individuals to improve programming, develop partnerships, and enhance professional staff.


FASA is a voice for quality afterschool programming and the only statewide membership organization for afterschool professionals. Working alongside the Florida Afterschool Network (FAN), FASA works to support national standards, accreditation for out-of-school programs, and advisory groups. FASA’s advocacy efforts help to educate the public about the benefits of high-quality, youth-focused, out-of-school programs.


FASA connects afterschool professionals who share a commitment to high-quality afterschool, before school, holiday, and summer programming to support the academic and personal growth of students.
