After-School Programs

Creating a more modern and robust democracy for all Nebraskans requires young people that are equipped with critical thinking, community leadership, and civil discourse skills.

A democracy built on equality, inclusivity, and compassion is one worth keeping. As part of our commitment to this ideal, Civic Nebraska leads seven extended-learning programs at elementary, middle, and high schools in both Lincoln and Omaha. Those include before- and after-school programs and other outside-of-school initiatives.

Below are the Community Learning Centers we run, along with more information about each CLC.

CIVIC NEBRASKA'S Community learning centers

As a Community Learning Center at Campbell Elementary, our program has various components. The illustration we like to use is one of a smart phone. The CLC, housed in the Campbell school building, is the smart phone itself and everything we offer is like an app at the fingertips of our community.  We want to be the go-to hub of resources for our families.
