Partnership 4 Kids is a local non-profit agency dedicated to helping Omaha Public Schools students succeed! Our mission at Partnership 4 Kids is to partner with our community and guide our youth toward academic success from kindergarten to careers through goal setting, mentoring, career exploration and college access programs.
Partnership 4 Kids has an elementary school program that takes place during the school day and an after-school program for middle and high school students.
Students who attend one of the twelve elementary schools that participate in Partnership 4 Kids are automatically enrolled in the elementary program, which focuses on setting and achieving individual student goals. Students team up with community volunteers called goal buddies in an effort to achieve quarterly goals in reading, math, and life skills. Students who reach their quarterly goals are recognized at school wide celebrations.
Starting in 7th grade, students may apply to be in the P4K after-school program. Students in the P4K after-school program meet twice a month with caring adult mentors and P4K staff members. As a group, the students and mentors discuss issues facing teens such as peer pressure, drug and alcohol awareness, and how to be a positive leader. Other classroom activities and field trips focus on career exploration, community service projects, college preparation, time-management and study skills. Transportation for meetings and events is available.
