We’re Making An Impact

City Impact Programs

For more than 24 years, City Impact programs have been making a difference for under-served Lincoln families.

Success Mentoring

“I have had Angela Pillow as a mentor from the beginning of this year. I love and enjoy my weekly meetings with Angela and how she has helped me to succeed greatly in school and any other area of life. She has been nothing short of caring and motivating me constantly to do the best I can because I know she believes in me and my abilities. She is one of my biggest supporters and I have been grateful for the opportunity to have her as my success mentor.”

– Folashade Gbajumo, Junior at Lincoln Northeast High School

An academics-focused program, for participating Lincoln area Middle Schools and High Schools, that pairs students with a City Impact Coordinator for group and one-on-one mentoring to create accountability and support.

Success mentoring meets students where they are and help them to find their passion for future success. Interested Lincoln area Middle Schools and High Schools may click the button below to contact us for more information.

City Impact (CI) Reading

We believe that readers become leaders!

City Impact Reading is a relationally-based, volunteer-driven, intensive reading program which utilizes research-based curriculum and teaching techniques to get students in grades K-5 reading at or above grade level. The programs vision is to empower all children, especially those most vulnerable, with the life changing benefits of literacy.

City Impact literacy programs cultivate a love of reading in its students. Students engage in reading through one-on-one tutoring, targeted literacy activities, and book clubs.

Starting January 24, 2023, CI Reading meets on Tuesdays throughout the school year from 4:30pm – 6:00pm at City Impact.

City Impact (CI) Book Clubs

We help students learn to read, and to love reading!

CI Book Club students cultivate a love of books through small group reading, discussion, and activities. A fun and encouraging environment for readers of all levels to explore learning and adventure. Available for grades 2-6.

Starting Summer 2023, CI Book Clubs meet on Saturdays from 10:00am – 11:30am for eight weeks each semester.
