Leading For Change

splash of color

When a young person’s life is shaking, stability becomes the most important factor in getting on track.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City is an anchor for these kids – and it’s all because of staff members and volunteers who care enough to give their very best each and every day.

Our impact wouldn’t be as great as it is today without the continued support from our Clubs leaders. You too can become a stabilizing force in a child’s life by getting involved.
