Hudson attends Afterschool Advocacy Day

Contributed photoThe Hudson Bluehawk Nation Afterschool Program (HBN ASP) had a seat at the table during Afterschool Advocacy Day sponsored by the New York State Network for Youth Success. Hundreds of afterschool advocates, including former HBN ASP director Kathy Clark, visited the Legislative Building on Jan. 22 to meet with state representatives and discuss why afterschool programs are important. Clark (pictured, third from left) spoke with Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins (center) and others about the need to increase per student funding to ensure the continued availability of high-quality afterschool and summer programs. Clark currently serves on the NYS Network for Youth Success Board of Directors.
