Northside Achievement Zone (NAZ)

Northside Achievement Zone

The Northside Achievement Zone (NAZ) Promise Neighborhood exists to end poverty in North Minneapolis through education. Together with our partners, we are supporting hundreds of low-income families as they put their children on a path to college.

To achieve this bold goal, we operate within three pillars:

  1. Partnering with parents to inspire belief and build the skills needed to support their children’s academic success, and to lead a community transformation.
  2. Create an effective education pipeline from early childhood to college.
  3. Support whole-family success so children show up ready to learn.

Working with NAZ, two generations are now lifting themselves out of poverty—and they are backed by a whole community of support.
