The NAC offers a free mentoring and academic program for underserved, inner city students to build their abilities as they prepare for college. Every student has access to formal and informal guidance in his or her education. Our holistic program works with students to develop life skills through free tutoring, academic advising, and counseling. Field trips and community service projects enhance students' understanding of the world around them. Our students never leave our program; they expand our footprint as they mature into adults.
