Youth Civic Leadership

Engaging nearly 1,500 youths daily through civic leadership – before, during, and after school.

“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.
