Lions' Pride provides a fun, educational alternative to all McMillan students after school! The YMCA of Greater Omaha administers Lions' Pride through a grant from the Middle School Learning Center Initiative (MSLCi). MSLCi is a joint effort of the Mayor's After-School Initiative, the Omaha Public Schools, and The Sherwood Foundation.* 

Lions' Pride offers a wide variety of activities including: Tutoring/Homework Help, Math Club, Juggling, Play Station 3, XBox 360, Bridge Club, YVC, Open Gym, Board Games, Swimming, Healthy Snacks, Hip Hop Dance, DREAM and much more!

Community providers are: African American Culture, Rose Theater, Red Cross, Girl Scouts, El Museo Latino, Holistic Development, and the Omaha Public Library. These organizations conduct interactive sessions with students.

Participation in Lions' Pride is free. Students must have the proper paperwork on file before participation is allowed. Lions' Pride is held Monday-Friday (when school is in session) from 2:45-5:30. Late buses are available to students who ride yellow school buses, at 5:00 and 5:30. Transportation is not provided for students who do not ride yellow school buses. Once a student leaves McMillan’s campus, s/he will not be allowed to return to the program or to ride a late bus. THE OMAHA PUBLIC SCHOOLS STUDENT CODE OF CONDUCT WILL STILL APPLY DURING THIS PROGRAM. A snack will be served to all participants.

Check the Lions' Pride web page on McMillan's website and listen to the daily student announcements for program updates.
