Summer Enrichment

We want to keep our students engaged all year long. By providing summer workshops and field trips in the areas of art, science, literature, social service, and healthy living, it is our hope that students will be motivated to take what they learn and apply it in their classroom studies and everyday lives.

  • Summer Leadership Camp
    • A group of students came together to learn more about the leadership qualities they possess and how to leverage these qualities in their chosen career fields. Students also had the opportunity to explore diversity, equity, and inclusion with their peers in a safe space.
  • Summer Bridge
    • A record number of students (54) attended the annual Summer Bridge where they participated in curriculum sessions designed to prepare first-year college students for their postsecondary education.
  • Healthcare: College & Career
    • Students had the opportunity to tour Makovicka Physical Therapy and some of the health careers offered at Metropolitan Community College.
  • College Care Baskets
    • Sixty-five first-year postsecondary students received college care baskets filled with dorm room essentials.

PlaySmart Merger

In 2021, Partnership 4 Kids and PlaySmart joined forces to better serve Omaha’s students of promise. PlaySmart is proud to introduce young people to new possibilities, broaden their perspectives, and raise aspirations. Their successful model consists of a dynamic group of friends, coaches, teachers, speakers, program leaders, volunteers, mentors, and partners. Through this merger, we are better able to cultivate tomorrow’s workforce through leadership development, academic support, postsecondary exploration, and career readiness. We are leveraging the combined strengths of our organizations to level the playing field for all.
