Early Childhood Education & Family Engagement

In partnership with Omaha Public Schools and Omaha Public Library

WE’RE ALL WORKING TOGETHER

Our community center in North Omaha is an amazing place for the caring adults in a child’s life to work together. Our program is one of the most innovative in the country, connecting childcare providers, future teachers, teaching teams and families. We know that improving outcomes during the early childhood years is one of the best predictors of lasting success.

2-GEN CHALLENGES THE OPPORTUNITY GAP
