The Guidance to Success (GTS) Youth Club is the overarching program in which the Higher Learning Program is a part of. Other programs include the Nebraska Buffalo Soldiers club basketball team. The Higher Learning program partners with the First United Methodist Church and NWU to provide a safe environment for the youth to learn and grow in. The program reaches out to at risk youth of which a majority are from a fatherless home. The Higher Learning Program offers the boys a chance to interact with college students on a college campus. The volunteers which we refer to as tutors are really tutors in life skills.
