The Nevada Afterschool Network (NAN) purpose is to promote the awareness and quality of expanded learning program in afterschool, summer and expanded learning opportunities. Utilizing its unique and effective leadership and committee structure, NAN is a convener of the field, facilitating a two-way flow of information between the field and state and National policymakers translating between policy and best practice. Ultimately NAN believes that these efforts will bring greater coherence and professionalism to the field and in turn improve outcomes and learning experiences for youth. We champion afterschool and summer learning by inspiring, empowering and connecting youth workers, partners, and advocates at state and local levels. We believe that together schools, communities, and families can create an inspiring day of learning.
