Our Mission

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-age students. Check it out!
