Collective for Youth is a tireless advocate for the under-served students of Omaha. To the agencies who do the programming, they provide research, materials, professional development, and consulting on every aspect of Out of School Programs.  They do all of this and more in a spirit of collaboration and shared vision that invites the entire community to feel invested.  Collective for Youth is changing the educational landscape of after school programs.”
