Current Affiliates

A NYSSCA Affiliate is an organization which shares NYSSCA’s mission and vision:

NYSSCA’s Mission is to unite, represent, and support professional school counselors in New York State as they provide academic, personal/ social, and career services for their students.

NYSSCA’s Vision is for every student in New York State to have access to a certified school counselor who is empowered with the knowledge, skills, connections, and resources to promote student success in the school, the home, the community, and the world.

Affiliates are local organizations of school counselors who are interested in being part of the State-wide network that NYSSCA provides. Affiliates complete an application form with basic information about the organization. There is no financial relationship in either direction and no other expectation other than mutual support of program offerings. Affiliation also provides opportunity for communication flow in both directions.
