About Us

NAFASI Partners is a free site for after-school youth programming ideas and resources, endorsed by park recreation staff, and based in the best available science of social emotional learning for youth. Our team has been developing and compiling after-school program resources for over two decades, with feedback from recreation leaders and park managers, after-school program directors, physical instructors, counselors and coaches at local and national levels. Our partners have represented several metropolitan park districts whose staff have engaged with the content during in-person trainings hosted by our team and via the website. There is no need to register, no login required, and no cost. We are motivated by our interest to support after-school providers to maximize the social-emotional benefits of recreation for youth.
