The New Mexico Out-of-School Time Network (NMOST) is a non-profit collaboration of public and private organizations and community members seeking to improve access to and quality of out-of-school extended learning programs - before and afterschool, summer learning, and youth development.
NMOST brings together policymakers, educators, childcare providers, youth development workers, and other stakeholders interested in ensuring positive youth development opportunities and outcomes through out-of-school time programs. To ensure a viable and sustained network structure in the state, NMOST established a leadership council with diverse members from across the state whose role it is to guide the implementation of a statewide, strategic plan focused on out-of-school time program quality, public awareness of the benefits of a quality out-of-school time experience, advocacy and policy development, professional development, linked learning strategies, and partnership development to increase the network base.
