ADVOCACY & POLICY WORK
NHAN administration team and steering committee work together to monitor public policy that supports afterschool and out of school funding at the state and national level to ensure all youth in New Hampshire have access to high quality programming and resources. At times, NHAN works with officials to propose legislation. We also assist in collecting statements for public comment at hearings. Important educational materials, reports and toolkits are prepared and given to legislators to encourage legislative advocacy.
NHAN builds partnerships and relationships that intersect with youth development and New Hampshire. We are always seeking to find champions that believe in quality out of school time.
Below are key links that NHAN uses to track, monitor and research policy.
