New registered families are eligible for a $125 Gift Card.

To enroll in NAZ, you must live within North Minneapolis, and/or attend one of our anchor sites, and have at least one child pre-birth to age 18. Families can self-refer or be referred by one of our anchor partners. (Priority will be given to families that reside on the Northside and attend one of our anchor sites. Our ability to accept referrals is dependent on roster sizes.)

Once you enroll, you will have the option to receive one-on-one support, guidance, and inspiration from a NAZ Family Achievement Coach who will help you create goals for your family, find resources to reach your goals, and then stick with it.
