Some students head home or to the streets, others stay for sports practice and others go straight into the library. It’s the last place you might expect to find a student at the end of the day. But that’s where our after-school program is located.
It is through partnerships that great tasks are accomplished and NLA has been a creative partner to 70 buildings in 30 school districts, nine postsecondary institutions, the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction, the federal Department of Education, key area foundations, and many community organizations and civic groups over our eleven year history. NLA’s co-Executive Directors, Barbara Peterson and Leroy Werkhoven bring a combined 60+ years experience working with state K-12 and postsecondary institutions.
