During our Back To School Giving Campaign, we’re highlighting our outside-of-school programs. Here’s what’s happening before and after school at the Trailblazers Afterschool Academy at Lewis & Clark Middle School in Omaha.
“We, the people” includes our youngest Americans, too. CIVIC NEBRASKA’s Youth Civic Leadership efforts include nine before- and after-school programs and service-learning clubs in Lincoln, Omaha, and Greater Nebraska.
Introducing youths to civic engagement allows them to develop critical thinking, civic leadership, and civil discourse skills. Engaged, informed citizens must be able to evaluate situations and act for positive change. Students who can think critically about, and make meaning of, societal issues are better able to navigate their individual environments – and succeed in them.

For meaningful progress,
we must STAND FAST.
