Outside-of-School Clubs

Personal growth. Service learning. Civil discourse. Critical thinking. Meaningful reflection. These are all components of civic leadership. Our clubs provide these skills -- and more.

Civic leadership is imperative to democracy. That’s why Civic Nebraska starts early, empowering Nebraska youth to lead the positive change they seek in their world and normalizing civic engagement at an early age. Our outside-of-school clubs emphasize personal growth, service learning, civil discourse, critical thinking, and meaningful reflection.


Society teaches girls that career aspirations should not include leadership or policymaking. Being underserved also teaches them that their future will be much as their present is. These youth drop out, go to jail, engage in high-risk behavior, and fail more than their more affluent peers.

Currently based at Omaha’s Norris Middle School, Circles partners highly successful professional women with girls as role models, who demonstrate real-world skill sets they use to succeed in their careers. Along the way, Circles students gain empowerment and gain a pathway to professional careers otherwise considered unattainable.

Are you a highly successful Omaha-area woman who has a passion for passing along your approach to career success to the next generation of female leaders? Let us know! 


Building young civic leaders means taking action. Street Teams offer exposure to community betterment projects that support learning standards as well as critical learning, civil discourse and civic leadership skills. These projects also compel students to reflect upon their impacts.

Currently based at Omaha’s McMillan, Marrs, and Morton middle schools, Street Teams engage communities with student-driven service learning and experiential learning. This includes STEM, social-emotional learning, the arts, and health and wellness. Through it all, youth learn to master the personal skills needed for strong citizenship. 

Do you know of a potential community project that Street Team could tackle as a service learning experience? Let us know!
