The mission of FAN is to provide unified leadership to advocate for the development, enhancement and sustainability of innovative, high quality afterschool programs and policies statewide.

The vision of FAN is that every child has high quality afterschool opportunities that are accessible, affordable, accountable and inclusive.

The goals of FAN are to create and sustain statewide infrastructure to establish collaborative public and private partnerships which connect local, state and national resources supporting afterschool programs that are school-based or school-linked; develop quality afterschool standards that are endorsed and promoted by statewide stakeholders and through Florida Afterschool Network, and promote public awareness and advocate for policy that expands funding, quality improvement initiatives and accessibility of afterschool programs.
