What We Do

NorthStar is home to north Omaha boys in 3rd-12th grade. Our goal is to build within them the tools and skills required to graduate on time, and to provide pathways to future education and employment. Our mission is to change young men’s lives through programming that supports, challenges, inspires, and instills a life rooted in education, self-discipline, and service to the community.

NorthStar after-school and summer activities include STEM programming, rock climbing, robotics, culinary classes, photography, college visits, basketball, lacrosse, canoeing, and more. Please join us in investing in the great young men at NorthStar!

Interesting Info

NorthStar sees an average of 180 young men every day in its after-school program, and over 230 boys during Camp NorthStar programming in June and July!
98% of NorthStar students maintain or increase core academic skills through Camp NorthStar, avoiding the detrimental effects of summer learning loss.
85% of parents/care-givers identify quality of programming as the primary reason for choosing NorthStar for their son.
