Our Mission

To connect underserved youth with opportunities and resources to be successful students and active individuals.

Pairing Education and Extracurricular Activities

The opportunity to participate in an extracurricular activity is the primary initiative SAVE uses to encourage active involvement in a child’s education and community.  By creating that connection between academic success and athletic/extracurricular support, our programming helps kids reach their potential both in the classroom and on the field. This mutually beneficial programming style makes it easy for participants to see how one element aids the other in their success.

We stand apart from any other organization in the area by bringing participants onto a college campus on a regular basis for educational tutoring, homework help and life skill courses. Our partnerships with the Multicultural Affairs Departments at Creighton University, Bellevue University, and the University of Nebraska Omaha allow us to provide tutoring/mentoring sessions on a weekly basis.

Who We Serve

We cater to under-served youth in grades 3-8 that reside in the Greater Omaha Area, particularly in the South Omaha, Bellevue, and Council Bluffs areas.

Currently, 120+ children participate in our weekly tutoring/mentoring program from our partner schools including All Saints Catholic, Birchcrest Elementary, and Gateway Elementary. Students are transported from these school locations to their partner university and back.
