Testimonial

"My son is high-functioning autistic, so I needed something that he enjoyed. It’s nice for me because I’m not as stressed out trying to make sure that he’s taken care of for that time after school. He loves NAZA and it keeps him active, and he’s made some friends already. I’ve had no problems with him coming home upset; he continually wants to come, be a part of it and do the extracurricular things with them."

“Our previous afterschool program was just hanging at a community center, but it was nothing instructional. It was just a place to keep you for a little bit. NAZA is very instructional for the kids, and I think it will take them a long way in life.”

Testimonial

“Being a single mom, working full time, and by the time I get home and cook dinner, the time is gone, so I’m more at ease because he’s being taught, and they do homework. The staff have been great. They are very enthusiastic and talk to me and make sure I understand what’s happening.”
