“I love Go Beyond because of all the helpful people that are in this community, and you get to meet a lot of new people. This is something I never thought I would be able to do. You get to go rock-climbing and a bunch of other fun stuff. So I really encourage you to try it if you want to step out of your comfort zone”


who we are

Go Beyond is a 501(c)3 non profit that has been serving Omaha Area Youth since 1977. For more than 40 years we have focused on the importance of a new group, authenticity, nature and adventure in the personal development of young people.  

what we do

Our programming takes 13-15 year-old youths away from the city and technology, out of their comfort zone, and challenges them to try new things. Through outdoor adventure activities such as rock-climbing, whitewater rafting, horseback riding, backpacking, hiking, and camping, participants gain a new understanding of themselves, their community, and our world.

“Thank you so much for the opportunity to do some of my favorite things that I can’t do in Omaha. I love rock climbing- it’s a special skill I have and I love showing it off. Thank you for making that possible!

– Vivian
