North Austin Community School Alliance was founded in October, 2009 as a partnership of schools and community groups in the North Austin area. Although many groups were working in the community, this alliance was created to multiply efforts, increase resources to become a unified voice.
OUR VISION is a healthy, stable neighborhood where all can succeed and prosper.
OUR MISSION is to promote ownership, responsibility and participation in the community by creating alliances with schools, community partners, and the surrounding neighborhoods to foster education and access to opportunities and resources for the growth and development of all our youth and families.
