Thank you for your interest in becoming an Affiliated Partner with NAZA.
NAZA's mission is to increase youths' equitable access to out-of-school time learning experiences that help youth thrive and develop to their full potential. Launched in 2010 by Mayor Karl Dean, the Nashville After Zone Alliance ( NAZA) is a partnership between the youth development organizations all working collaboratively to improve the learning experiences of youth.
In an effort to scale up the number of high-quality learning opportunities available for youth in Nashville, NAZA offers a second partnership tier called Affiliated Partners. These partners receive in-kind access to professional development and program evaluation tools. They do not, however, receive program funding through NAZA.
The Affiliated Partner Application will remain open. Applying organizations will be contacted and onboarded according to the date upon which their application was received. Newly added Affiliated Partners will be contacted by the NAZA :Partnerships Manager with details for the date, time, and location of the Onboarding Session.
The timeline for Affiliated Partner Onboarding is as follows:
Applications submitted February 1st- May 31st will be onboarded in July.
Applications submitted June 1st- September 30th will be onboarded in November.
Applications submitted October 1st- January 31st will be onboarded in March.
