H.O.S.T. Collaborative

H.O.S.T. Collaborative

The mission of the Hudson Out-of-School Time Collaborative is to build a culture of learning in our community by creating pathways for youth and their families to engage in meaningful out-of-school experiences.


Comprised of a large group of local organizations that provide out of school time experiences for school aged children and their families within the Hudson City School District, H.O.S.T. is committed to providing positive growth and sustainable life skills. H.O.S.T. provides high quality programs that foster a culture of learning within safe and supportive environments.  Each organization brings their own ideas and experiences to work together collaboratively and find solutions to assist one another.  The organizations meet on a monthly basis, share data, resources,developments, successes and failures, and participate in and assist the community programs held by other organizations. As the tenth, and newest, New York State Afterschool Network (NYSAN) affiliated Regional Network, we have the support needed to implement our programs and relay our message to the community, as well as to see what has worked in other regions and receive training from professionals on planning and implementing after-school programs.
