Partnerhip 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
Our Student 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
Conestoga students are automatically part of P4K's 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
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.
P4K student participants can even earn college scholarships!
Those students who meet all program requirements and continue to
participate in Partnership 4 Kids through high school graduation may be
eligible to receive tuition assistance for college or trade school
through the agency's scholarship fund.
