Developing community brilliance by cultivating youth leadership
Those closest to the problem are closest to the solution. This is why all of KCYAC projects are focused on community needs and driven by our youth leaders.
KCYAC is dedicated to strengthening our community network by partnering with youth and youth serving organizations. You can catch our young leaders facilitating workshops, tabling at local high schools, and being community advocates.
From goal setting to professional development opportunities, KCYAC helps our young leaders acquire long lasting skills and feel empowered in their communities.
