NAZ CORE VALUES

Advance Racial Equity

We commit to ending all forms of race-based disparities by first healing our own racialized trauma, understanding the impact and history of this type of trauma on others, ensuring equitable policies & practices, and working towards wellness and health in our own minds and bodies alongside our schools and community.

Create Trusting Partnerships

We commit to valuing and creating effective relationships with all our collaborative partners as a key means to community-wide transformation. Breaking down silos, building trust, resolving conflicts, and fostering a spirit of shared accountability are the key drivers of everything we do.

Exhibit Integrity in Everything

We commit to being transparent and clear in all our communications, accountable to each other in all we do, to move from talk to action, and to be worthy of the trust granted us by the partners, colleagues, parents and scholars that make up the NAZ Collaborative.

Get Results Using Data and Learning

We commit to hold each other accountable as team players to achieve measurable outcomes with children and families using data, family & scholar success stories, and learning, and continuous improvement tools–  gauging family success by their own achievements, and not by that of programs and organizations.

See the Good in Everyone

We commit to use a growth mindset and to see the good in everyone and everything across our collaborative. We show up positively with all people, looking for their good no matter their behaviors and in challenging situations, looking for and offering solutions.

Join us as we support a generation of Northside children on their journey to college.
