Mission Statement


The mission of Norris Square Neighborhood Project (NSNP) is to nurture and actively involve neighborhood children and their families in learning responsibility for self, culture, community, and environment.

Description


Norris Square Neighborhood Project was founded in 1973 by a local fifth grade schoolteacher seeking alternative learning experiences for neighborhood children. NSNP is a community-run, multi-cultural, bilingual, urban environmental learning center, which provides a safe environment for children and parents to learn about their greater environment. It is a place where neighbors can meet, exchange ideas, and solve problems. Currently, we receive funding from the United Way and a number of other organizations. Our program typically serves 50 students in from ages 6 ? 17. Students attend the program five days a week from 3:00 to 6:00. The After-School Program was one of NSNP?s first programs. This program is designed to be educational, culturally enriching and to foster self-expression, exploration and development as well as team work. The mission of NSNP?s after-school is to provide academically enriched activities that are engaging, interactive, and fun. We strive to educate youth about the environment, build a sense of self and self-esteem, encourage cooperation and leadership among youth, promote self-expression through creative and performing arts, offer literacy enrichment opportunities, and provide recreational activities.
