Youth Programs

Programs

Our Youth Programs are supported with funding from United Way, Juvenile Justice Prevention Funds and Rotary Club 14.

Our Youth Coordinator, Candace Orton, serves in the Youth on the Move AmeriCorps program sponsored through Lincoln Parks and Recreation.

We support high school students through programs that:

  • offer academic support
  • promote social and physical well-being
  • strengthen connections to school and family
  • Tuesdays, 2:15-4:30pm
    Lincoln High, room 100D
    Students direct a digital storytelling project about Lincoln's refugee youth community. The first year of the project was called "Tah Ka Pal." Now in year three, the program is conducted in partnership with Fly Over Media.
