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. 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

Clubs will function using the Community Learning Centers (CLCs) model - to find out more about this initiative, visit the Lincoln Public Schools CLC page. There is also a great video describing the program - view it here.
