NAZ CORE VALUES

Bring About 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, and working towards wellness and health in our own minds and bodies alongside our schools and community.

Act from a Growth Mindset

We commit to believing in the unlimited human potential that is realized through hard work and support–to learn, to grow, and to realize our dreams–first in ourselves and also in all others.

Exhibit Integrity across our Collaborative

We commit to being transparent and clear in all our communications, accountable to each other in all that we do, to move from problems to solutions, 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 working hard as team players to achieve measurable outcomes with children and families using data, family and scholar success stories, learning, and continuous improvement tools–gauging success by their achievement, not programs and organizations.

See the Good in Everyone

We commit to look for 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 we show up humble and positive, especially in challenging situations, looking for and offering solutions instead of complaints.

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