In early 2021, we witnessed the highest levels of violence our city had ever experienced and a decline in opportunities for young people in the summer due to the pandemic. We had to act.
Three organizations came together and the summer youth employment program was birthed. The initiative focuses on creating employment opportunities and expanding career pathways for Kansas City youth from historically marginalized communities most impacted by violence.
KC Common Good is addressing the root causes of violence to instill hope and ensure a successful future for every individual in the greater Kansas City region. Our mission is to create an environment where all citizens can live safely and have access to real opportunities. As a convener and connector, our vision is to bring together diverse stakeholders to create societal change.
YouthLed KC is a youth capacity building agency that is bridging the gap between school and work, helping to prepare the next generation with the essential skills necessary to lead to promising futures.
