Launched in 2015, the campaign to Save After School is a coalition of after school providers, advocates, families, administrators, educators, law enforcement officials, and other allies from across California. Together, we advocate for the resources that after school programs need to continue to deliver high-quality activities, services, and support to over 860,000 children and youth across the state.

More than 16,000 Californians joined the Save After School Campaign and took action to achieve the first increase in state funding for after school in over a decade, including school districts, county offices of education, cities, families, after school staff, sheriffs, chiefs of police, district attorneys, businesses, and advocacy organizations.

The Save After School Campaign is led by the California Afterschool Advocacy Alliance (CA3).
