Tennessee Afterschool Network

The mission of the Tennessee Afterschool Network is to support children, youth, families and communities by advocating and building capacity with a unified voice for sustainable investments in safe, healthy and nurturing afterschool experiences.

Current Projects and Initiatives: 
  • The Tennessee Afterschool Network is working on developing state standards.

  • The network is conducting at least a dozen community conversations around challenges and strategies to better align afterschool with academic standards.

  • The network is planning at least a dozen locations of events for a summer learning/day of action, focusing on nutrition/activity and reading.

  • The Tennessee Afterschool Network worked with their White-Riley-Peterson Fellow on a mapping survey to assess availability of services and an analysis of policy agendas from across the state to help identify gaps and opportunities.
