NAZA Leader Awarded National Fellowship

Congratulations to Anna Harutyunyan, NAZA Coordinator, who is being recognized by the Riley Institute at Furman University! Anna is one of 16 leaders in the field of afterschool & expanded learning being awarded a prestigious White-Riley-Peterson (WRP) Policy Fellowship. This is a 10-month, national program is designed to equip leaders with a real-world understanding of policymaking for afterschool & expanded learning.  “We all need to be creative in how to engage a 21st century child in effective learning in the era of universal access to technologies,” says Anna. “To me, the secret of a ready and successful child is in the methods of learning, both formal and informal.” As part of the fellowship, Ms. Harutyunyan will develop and implement a state-level policy project in partnership with TN Afterschool Network.  Read the full press release here.
