Northside Achievement Zone

The Northside Achievement Zone (NAZ) Promise Neighborhood exists to permanently close the achievement gap in North Minneapolis. 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.
