Ascend is a national leader on cutting-edge, two-generation strategies to improve educational success. The two-generation philosophy, which involves working with parents and children together, is the foundation for the Learning Community Center’s programming in South and North Omaha. These local programs work to help families and children in the area who are struggling with poverty and its impact in learning.
With the Learning Community’s selection as an Ascend Network Partner, staff will have the opportunity to learn from innovative programs across the country and share what they learned with others.
“This sort of invitation doesn’t happen without a quality team who are attuned to the children and families in our communities,” Renee Franklin, Executive Director of Elementary Learning Centers in Douglas and Sarpy Counties said. “A very special thanks to Anne O’Hara, Jamalia Parker and entire team of partners who are dedicated to the continuous improvement and results that are making such a strong difference in our community.”
