We provide schools and their community partners with assistance in financing, improving and sustaining after school and summer programs.

Training and Technical Assistance

Partnership for Children & Youth (PCY) is a California-based non-profit organization that finds funding, partners, and solutions to help schools better serve students; and informs state and national public policy on education issues. We can help you ensure more children and youth have equitable access to sustainable, high-quality expanded learning opportunities by igniting systems of continuous learning, fostering collaboration, and building leadership.

We offer technical assistance support with the goal of supporting sustainable, high-quality expanded learning programs that are committed to the success of students in school and in life. Here is a sample menu of our Training and Technical Assistance Services. 

Our Approach

PCY’s approach to Technical Assistance (TA) has been defined as ongoing, needs-driven support services to create effective and quality expanded learning programs. We deliver TA that leverages our extensive experience and competencies. Each of our TA providers possesses extensive knowledge, interpersonal skills, professionalism, and evaluation skills. We utilize a range of TA strategies to impact the quality of expanded learning programs; including training, facilitation, mentoring, coaching, consulting and providing and brokering resources. We believe TA should be driven by program outcomes, locally determined, promote the transfer of learning, focus on developing leadership, promote alignment with the school day, and be inclusive.
