Stop budget cuts for youth programs

104 Signatures Goal: 250

Governor Paterson’s proposed cuts to after-school programs will eliminate free access to programs for at least 10,000 children, and over 2,500 jobs in the youth development field may be lost.The future of the nation depends on the support to its youth.

We urge New York State to restore funding for all after-school programs.
