KC Urban Advantage is changing the lives of underserved students and educators from schools throughout the Kansas City Metro area.
DID YOU KNOW? Less than 20% of the KC metro area’s underserved 5th graders scored proficient or higher in science. Science proficiency is an integral 21st century skill, yet out of reach for many. KC Urban Advantage is ready to do something about it. Urban Advantage programs in other cities have a demonstrated record of making change. New York Urban Advantage schools went from performing below non-UA schools by almost 10 percent to exceeding them by 10% in just 4 years!
Now, in the Museum at Prairiefire and Partner institution’s 2nd year, KC URBAN ADVANTAGE provides these amazing children, along with their families and teachers, unprecedented access to STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) through hands-on educational experiences with Kansas City’s preeminent science and cultural institutions. Help us expand their universe and connect them to a FUTURE OF NEW POSSIBILITIES.
Please donate today or help us raise funds to provide Kansas City area students, schools, and teachers with the tools, resources and transportation required to take advantage of the Kansas City Urban Advantage Program (KCUA).
With your support, the KC Urban Advantage team will have the capacity to expand the program, and reach many more underserved students, schools and families in the KC metro region.
