Honors Clubs are semester-long afterschool clubs facilitated by UNL's Honors students. They are paid, experiential learning opportunities that give our students specific skills while meeting a community need. They also fulfill the UHON 201H credit. During the duration of the club, students are reflecting on their experiences, both individually and in a group setting. This is a mutually beneficial experience. Honors students get an opportunity to share their passion without the pressure of a formal setting
- Our students gain skills such as creative problem solving, communication, and adaptability.
- Our community partners gain quality, consistent employees for their sites.
- Our kids in clubs get exciting topics from passionate students who can facilitate hands-on and potentially career-altering experiences.
Students have the option of creating their own curriculum, which upon completion, is available for download worldwide at go.unl.edu/hpclubrepository

Students have also facilitated “ACTivate: College Success Bootcamp,” an interactive college preparatory program for rising sophomore and junior high school students who qualify for free and reduced lunch.
Clubs will function using the Community Learning Centers (CLCs) model - to find out more about this initiative, visit the Lincoln Public Schools CLC page.
Interested in hearing from student experiences? Check out UNL Honors Club on YouTube. Please note that we changed the structure in 2019 to reflect the number of hours put into the club, which is about 36 hours over a semester or up to 3 hours a week. Since it is under 120 hours, this opportunity counts for your UHON 201H credit instead of a UHON 99H. Interested in earning UHON 99H credit for an Honors Club? Dedicate 10+ hours a week to host in the summer instead!
