To help youth in our area find new directions and educational pathways to a high school diploma, we want to raise funds during Omaha Gives! so we can provide our free services to even more young people. Learn more about what we do in the videos below.
What We Do
The mission of the D2 Center is to connect out-of-school and disengaged youth ages 15-21 into an educational pathway with other resources and supports needed to earn a high school diploma and prepare for post-secondary opportunities and a career.
We Do This Through
Customized Individual Support —
Based on best practices from national models and research, we help students develop a plan for academic success including credit attainment, youth advocacy, and multiple pathways to earn a high school diploma. Each student is assigned an adult with a college degree who builds a relationship with the youth as a role model, case manager, and problem solver with a strong focus on school attendance and earning credits.
We offer elective credit classes for students who need alternative ways to earn high school credits. Tutoring is also available.
Careers and Community Engagement Program —
We take students through activities that help identify career interests, strengths, and post-secondary opportunities.
