Welcome to Awesome Ambitions KC
Awesome Ambitions is a not-for-profit mentoring program for young women in the Kansas City area. Women throughout the metro area work with our freshmen through senior girls with the goal of improving self esteem, learning to value education now and post-graduate, exploring employment and career options, learning about financial management, fitness & nutrition, leadership development and other life skills.
These goals are accomplished through monthly Saturday conferences, field trips and other events which provide educational experiences, leadership, and support. As a sign of our success, 89% of the Awesome Ambitions Seniors last year graduated on time. This occurred in a school district where more than 50% of the students drop out. Most of our graduates are continuing on to college - many being the first in their families to do so.
The Kansas City Missouri School District is a working example of an institution improving education for urban scholars. As we sit on the cusp of the 2012-2013 school year, the District continues its efforts to re-attain its accreditation through new programs and endeavors. Awesome Ambitions is recognized as a Community Partner of the school district. These big changes are greatly improving the opportunities the students will receive. Yet, while absolutely necessary, change brings fear of the unknown from the students and parents. Awesome Ambitions works to support our young women during this tumultuous time, while working with the District to accomplish its educational and community goals.
