National Achievers Society

NAS (National Achievers Society) recognizes students for their academic achievements and prepares them for post-secondary education.

The program focuses on encouraging, recognizing and reinforcing academic achievement among minority youth to counter pervasive and damaging public images of African-American youth in our society.

The goal is to energize adults to re-dedicate themselves to preparing children to meet the academic and job standards of the 21st Century.
