Today, Nashville Mayor John Cooper announced that his team has officially launched the Nashville Out-Of-School-Time Program Locator.
Today, I launched Nashville’s Out-of-School Time Program Locator – a new online resource for families looking to find programming for Nashville students! I’m excited to visit students and educators this afternoon @InglewoodES.

This program plays a key role in the Mayor’s goal to support students and prepare them for the real world. The site helps parents and students find programs that can support them in their needs and passions.
More About the Website
The program parters with Nashville After Zone Alliance (NAZA), Metro Nashville Public Schools (MNPS), and United Way of Greater Nashville.
Essentially, the goal of the website is to connect students with existing programs that take place out-of-school. These programs range from tutoring or homework help to programs that help youth find their future career.
The Mayor hopes the program will provide Nashville students with skills to help them succeed in life. So the website makes it easy to find and get involved in all of these programs and more.
According to their website, “The Nashville After Zone Alliance (NAZA) is a partnership between the Nashville Public Library, Metro Nashville Public Schools, the Mayor’s Office, and over 30 youth development organizations all working collaboratively to increase access to transformative learning experiences for youth during out-of-school-time hours.”
And their mission is, “To increase youths’ equitable access to out-of-school time learning experiences that help youth thrive and develop to their full potential.”
