NorthStar is committed to expanding opportunities for boys to find and follow their own paths to success.

Summer 2021

Helping young Men

NorthStar is making an impact on North Omaha and the surrounding community. They are continuing to build academic, athletic and social programs for NorthStar families. They are the only all-boys after-school program in Omaha serving grades 3-12 during the school year, and grades 3-9 during Camp NorthStar Summer School, with an emphasis on academic success, competitive athletics, experiential learning, and opportunities to build job-readiness skills.

What They
Are Saying

“We are deeply grateful for the generous grant provided by The Shikhar & Kristin Saxena Foundation this year to help us deliver on Camp NorthStar’s mission of stemming summer learning loss, which might otherwise effect NorthStar boys during out-of-school time months. We know the impact of the many disruptions caused the COVID-19 pandemic have been intensely felt by the young men we serve at NorthStar.”

“We also know that the work of nurturing and accelerating our students’ academic and social-emotional development will now require an even deeper focus on implementing research-tested, individualized interventions and program supports. We are, then, very honored by The Shikhar & Kristin Saxena Foundation’s partnership and by their shared commitment to supporting vulnerable students with programs that integrate strong systems of data and impact measurement.”
