Their future. Our future.

Demonstrate. It's a powerful word and our primary focus.

Learning starts long before a child enters school. It's about more than test scores. 

That's why the Learning Community of Douglas and Sarpy Counties is here to challenge the opportunity gap. Our job is to demonstrate new opportunities that children and families need across the entire metro region. 

Today, more families struggle with poverty and obstacles to learning. We aim for opportunities with lasting impact that build on the strength of our families. We see great progress.

School districts, community partners and families - we work together to close the opportunity gap. That's good for everyone. Stronger children and families make our communities stronger too.
