Holiday greetings from The NAN Project,
As we head into the holiday season and close out 2021, The NAN Project is grateful for a year full of growth, change and resilience. We expanded our footprint geographically and increased our programming to include law enforcement training and an enhanced professional development menu. We hired two new Peer Coordinators, both bilingual, and said goodbye to our beloved, Elli, as she moved on to a new exciting role in the peer support world. In September, TNP moved from a virtual platform back into live classroom presentations, finding both students and teachers struggling with residual trauma from the pandemic. It has been a year like no other for all of us, but I am proud to say that The NAN Project has grown stronger, in part, due to the adversity imposed by COVID 19.
So, during this special time of year when the days are short and the nights are long, we offer heartfelt thanks to all who have participated in, supported and followed The NAN Project. You have guided and encouraged us as we navigated these dark and difficult times. Whether it be “liking us” on Facebook, financially contributing or attending a presentation, you provided us with the motivation to keep pushing forward.
Now more than ever, The NAN Project’s work is vital and can literally make a difference in the lives of young people. We thank our Peer Mentors, our supporters, our friends and our amazing colleagues for all that you do to promote our work. Our warmest wishes to you and your family for a healthy and peaceful holiday and a happy New Year.
Ellen and Jake
