Afterschool Programs

The Urban League of Nebraska offers high-quality afterschool programs to elementary and middle school youth attending Omaha public schools. Our programs provide academic supports and enrichment activities to hundreds of students in a safe environment.

Activities

We have a true partnership with Omaha Public Schools. Our highly-trained, culturally-competent staff works closely with each school’s teachers to identify students who are missing assignments and to determine areas where students may need additional help. This helps us allocate study time and tutoring for your student.

Students participate in a wide variety of classes, workshops and other activities that help develop academic and personal skills, such as positive work habits and accountability. Students also develop social and behavior skills through peer and adult interaction, so they will feel connected to the program, resulting in reduced risky behaviors.
