Mission

To mentor young women in their efforts to define their own success, to plan how to achieve that success, and believe that they are capable of accomplishing and deserving of enjoying success

Awesome Ambitions is a free not-for-profit mentoring and college-readiness program for 8th through 12 grade girls in the Kansas City area. Professional women volunteer their time to work side by side with our girls to help mentor them on the importance of getting a good education, explore employment and career options, learn about financial management, fitness and nutrition, leadership development and other life skills.

Awesome Ambitions begins new year with big goals

Awesome Ambitions is beginning it's new fall term with some Awesome Ambitions. Our kick-off event was on September 9th at the UMKC School of Nursing. This is the first year the program is adding 8th grade girls to learn alongside girls from high schools around the Kansas City metropolitan area. This is also the first year Awesome Ambitions will meet twice a month, typically on the first and third Saturday. Co-Founders with Sisters Circle presented a check to Awesome Ambitions for $18,000. The money will be used to create a book by the end of the school year. Each Awesome Ambitions girl will have a page in the book, written by her with pictures explaining her experiences in the program. To get acquainted at the launch event on September 9th, we formed teams, and played a lip synch game --pretending to perform as a band and singers. Our next event with be at Union Station on September 23rd.
