Civic Nebraska is the community partner and lead agency for the Lothrop Community Learning Center. We are excited to see the meaningful difference your students will make in the classroom and community through our youth-led programs!
The Lothrop Magnet Community Learning Center offers a variety of expanded learning opportunities and community-focused programming through its partnership with Civic Nebraska. Our goal is to use the local school as a hub for services and community organizing. The mission of our CLC is to provide support services and opportunities which lead to successful kids, thriving families, and strong neighborhoods.
The Lothrop Magnet Community Learning Center serves neighborhood students and our school’s extended community. Learn more about how Civic Nebraska approaches after-school education.
At home and can’t join us in person? Not to worry – our CIVIC U. Virtual Learning Hub has hours of programming for elementary students.
