“The Nest at Osborne High School is a full-service wraparound center that was birthed through student voice. The Nest will provide comprehensive holistic support services. Through strategic partnerships, local and statewide agencies will provide access to technology, academic tutorial support, college and career interest exploration, social and emotional life skills groups, mentoring, basic need support, and extracurricular activities. These services will be regularly provided in the school setting as well as in the neighborhoods where our families reside. The Nest will be a system of support to ensure that students and families do not fall through the cracks.”
