Give to the Max for NAZ Scholars and Families

Dear Friend:

NAZ scholars and families are making major strides. As we work to enroll half of all families living in the Zone, these individual successes, like those of Daunte and Willy below, are creating a tipping point toward a college-going culture.

We hope that today you will continue your critical partnership with this effort by giving to the max for NAZ scholars and their families.

Together we are all transforming the Northside!

NAZ Star Scholar: Willy N.

WillyFifth grader Willy N. is a bright student, but he struggled in school. He was removed from mainstream classes, and didn’t receive the academic support he needed. As a result, his confidence—and his grades—plummeted.

Then, in the summer of 2014, Willy attended NAZ Anchor Partner Plymouth Christian Youth Center’s Expanded Learning Summer Program, where he was treated just like every other kid. In this environment, Willy’s motivation to learn got a big boost, and he jumped an impressive two grade levels in reading, while his score on the math skills assessment increased from 88 to 100 percent. Willy now attends KIPP North Star Academy, a NAZ Anchor School, where he is a high achiever and a classroom leader.
