Dennis | New NAZ Family Achievement Coach at KIPP

"I have the chance to work with families who remind me of myself and how I grew up. I was able to have close mentors who supported me through my own journey as I became successful in my own right. I can now be that mentor for someone else."

Daunte Conquers Challenges

In 2013, Daunte N. and his family experienced high mobility. But despite the challenges involved with moving and switching schools, Daunte stayed focused on his academics and goals. Through Out-of-School Time summer programming at NAZ Anchor Partner Plymouth Christian Youth Center, Daunte gained one year of growth in reading over the summer.

This third-grader is an exceptionally motivated student, admired not only by his friends, but also by his teacher, Jeremy L. And NAZ Connector Jaton W. is blown away by his resilience, saying that Daunte knows what he needs to do and does it no matter what obstacles are thrown his way.
