N.I.Y.A.A.A. offers a wide range of academic support services specifically tailored towards African American students who are impacted by any of the major risk factors common in our communities. Our ‘purpose’ in Academics is based on Marcus Garvey’s quote: “we must build a race of scientists, par excellence.” Thus, other than our academic support services, STEM enrichment activities are the foundation of our educational approach. We also provide culturally relevant enrichment and mentoring services for at risk minority students.

  • Academic Planning and Assessment

  • Summer Activities and Courses
  • Distance learning
  • Resources and referrals
