You should have a hydraulic clutch with a master cylinder. (Usually located near the brake master cylinder) Take the cover off the master and see if there's any fluid in it. If it's full, look under the van where the clutch pivot arm is and see if something broke there. If not, you can lookat the footwell to see if the linkage from the pedal to the master broke.

If there isn't any fluid, you have a leak.
