LATINX EDUCATION COLLABORATIVE

The LEC works to increase Latinx representation in the field of K-12 education. The LEC believes that representation is a key element in creating successful outcomes for all students. Data show that when students are exposed to a diverse teaching staff, educational outcomes improve. Roughly 25% of incoming kindergartners across the country identify as Latinx. Only 8% of educators do. The LEC wants to close that gap.

KC CROSSOVER

Our goal is simple: use basketball to help each kid move past cultural, economic, and self-imposed barriers that too often crush their spirits.

KC Crossover is more than teaching basketball fundamentals. They are committed to helping kids from both under-served and advantaged backgrounds, throughout Kansas City, cross over racial, gender, socioeconomic, and geographic boundaries that, unfortunately, define and divide them.

Compassionate Partners K.C. offer resiliency-building services designed with one goal in mind; to ensure that children/youth who are experiencing adversity can still become healthy productive citizens. They are achieving their goals through programs they call “Compassionate Projects”.

They partner with community based non-profit organizations in Wyandotte County, Kansas that feed the hungry and provide shelter to the homeless. Their services are intended to empower and encourage individuals vulnerable to poor outcomes due to adverse experiences. They focus their attention to the silent victims of domestic violence and homelessness; the children. In 2019 they are hoping to extend their services to other non-profits within the Kansas City metropolitan area.
