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.

The Expelled Student Program allows students the opportunity to progress academically during the time they are removed from the standard educational setting. The program gives students an alternative educational model for those who have been expelled but are very interested in maintaining their school work and grade level.
