Changing lives one kid at time. This has been a driving force behind Partnership for Our Kids ever since its birth. In 2007, Winners Circle and All Our Kids joined forces with their united vision to help disadvantaged students create and maintain a desire to learn and graduate.
 

Partnership for Our Kids serves over 4,500 at-risk youth from Omaha Public Schools by getting them involved in the organization’s programs. The Winners Circle program encourages students to achieve goals in reading, math and life skills with support and motivation from their teachers, parents and volunteers. Students are recognized and honored for their success at quarterly Winners Circle Celebrations. The All Our Kids mentoring and scholarship program helps students in grades 6- 12. Teachers and counselors select students who have obstacles keeping them from their academic potential. Participating students then attend bi-monthly meetings to learn about academic skills, tutoring, career exploration, leadership, team-building and healthy living.
 

Partnership for Our Children hosts a variety of events during the year to reach out to the public. On July 30th, they created “An Evening to Escape” during the Summer Wine and Food Festival.
 

Interested in helping out? You can make donations or volunteer as a Goal Buddy with the Winners Circle or a Group Mentor with All Our Kids. For more information, visit www.partnershipforourkids.org.
