NAZA-Sponsored Programs

The Nashville AfterZone Alliance (NAZA) is an expanded learning system of high-quality afterschool and summer programs for middle and high school students across Nashville. NAZA is a unique public-private partnership among the Mayor’s Office, Metro Nashville Public Schools (MNPS), and the Nashville Public Library. NAZA has 2 primary goals: 1) to provide increased access for out-of-school programming for middle and high school youth in economically-disadvantaged communities and 2) to create a culture of high-quality programming across providers through professional development and quality assurance. To date, NAZA has provided 7800 students with access to quality out-of-school (OST) programs. NAZAsponsored programs are currently offered to students from 26 middle schools in 45 school-based and community-based sites.
