The Mini Apple Looks to the Big Apple to Get in the Zone!
Northside Achievement Zone community members
Organizers are planning to wrap North Minneapolis kids in a coordinated, community-driven support system that incorporates over 60 organizations. Sound familiar? We’re glad it does! The Northside Achievement Zone aims to serve 200 families in the neighborhood of North Minneapolis using the Promise Neighborhood model, even though they didn’t get a grant from the Department of Education. They’re looking to the successful place-based work of the Harlem Children’s Zone and other neighborhoods to help chart their course.
