National Academy Foundation Advisory Committee
National Academy Foundation
Advisory Board Manual:
NAF’s Mission: The mission of the National Academy Foundation (NAF) is to sustain a national network of career academies to support the development of America’s youth toward personal and professional success in high school, in higher education, and throughout their careers.
“For young people, the NAF Academy experience allows them to see a future for themselves. This changes their lives. It changes their parents’ lives. It impacts their communities.” - Sanford I. Weill, Chairman, NAF Board of Directors
“We have to stop thinking about the workplace as an alternative to education, but rather, education as the route to the workplace.” - JD Hoye, President, NAF
NAF is committed to the development of curricula, the integration of work-based learning experiences, including internships, and the proactive involvement of Advisory Boards to support the work of high school educators in this mission. NAF places overarching emphasis on connecting students with adults, and classrooms with the “real world,” thereby supporting the new three “Rs” in education: Rigor, Relevance and Relationships.
