What is NorthStar?

NorthStar is the only single sex, boys only after-school program in Greater Omaha. Building the promising futures of school-aged boys, to help them achieve success both academically and in life is essential to transforming our community and building the next generation.

NorthStar Organizational Background

The NorthStar Foundation was created to focus on the critical, unmet needs of North Omaha's young men, beginning in fifth grade, with the goal of helping them grow into healthy, educated, employed contributors to the community. NorthStar will be the only all-male after-school program in Greater Omaha. NorthStar’s vision is to change lives through programming that supports, challenges, inspires, and instills a life rooted in education, self-discipline and service to the community.

It is anticipated that the majority of future NorthStar students will reside within the 68111 and 68104 zip codes and attend schools located within seven minutes of the NorthStar campus at 49th & Ames Avenue.

The NorthStar Foundation completed construction in May 2014. The full continuum of after-school programming began in August 2014.
