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 a connection between academic success and extracurricular activity support, our programming helps kids reach their potential both in and out of the classroom. 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 with our Academic Mentoring Program. Our partnerships with the Intercultural Affairs Departments at Creighton University, Bellevue University, University of Nebraska Omaha, and Metro Community College 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.

Currently, 200+ children participate in our weekly tutoring/mentoring program from our partner schools including All Saints Catholic School, Birchcrest Elementary, Gateway Elementary, Highland Elementary, Norris Elementary, Sacred Heart, Sandoz Elementary and Wake Robin Elementary. Students are transported from these school locations to their partner university and back.
