about Us

GIVE (Get Involved. Value Everyone.) is an after-school program in selected OPS middle schools. It is a student-led service-learning program that is facilitated by experienced youth leaders. The GIVE mission is to help young people cultivate community values in our students as well as giving them opportunities to empower and serve those around them.


GIVE is one of many life skills and character education programs developed by Courteous Kids, recently renamed to Life Launch. Life Launch offers a continuum of curriculum and programs from ages 4-19 starting from the inside out. Our mission is to cultivate character, confidence, and compassion in young people, Nebraska and beyond! Courteous Kids became a nonprofit, 501 C-3 in 2013 and has served over 10,000 youth since that time.
