Lewis & Clark Middle School Trailblazers Afterschool Academy
Civic Nebraska is the lead agency and is responsible for the Trailblazers Afterschool Academy.
We offer FREE afterschool programming with a hot meal for all students at Lewis and Clark with the goals of improving student learning, school attendance, and performance. The Trailblazer Afterschool Academy provides quality out of school time programming. We exemplify innovation and optimism while being civically engaged in our community.
We utilize Social Emotional Learning daily to empower youth and cultivate a culture of kindness.
