Awesome Ambitions meetings are generally the first and third Saturday of each month beginning September 2017. Dates and times may change because of holidays or special events. The meetings are held at UNKC School of Nursing, 2464 Charlotte, in Kansas City, Missouri. Girls are to check-in at 8:30am and the Awesome seminars begin promptly at 9am. It is important to develop a positive habit of arriving on-time; so please plan accordingly. We recommend girls eat breakfast before coming. We will provide lunch at every meeting. Awesome meetings end at 2pm unless a different pick-up time is listed because of travel-time for a field trip. Parents will always drop-off and pick-up their girls at the UMKC School of Nursing.

What Our Volunteers Do
Volunteers are role models, teachers, helpers, leaders and supporters. They are cheerleaders working with our Awesome girls in a variety of roles during the bi-monthly Saturday sessions.
To be considered as a volunteer, please complete an application and submit to a background check. We will explain further as we interview you after we receive your application.
You can submit the online application or download it and mail the completed form to Awesome Ambitions, P.O. Box 22456, Kansas City, Missouri 64113.
Note: While the overwhelming majority of volunteer applicants pass this screening, some do not. The most common reasons for failure are having a currently suspended driver’s license or having a DW/DUI within the last three years. These findings, among others, automatically disqualify an applicant from serving as an Awesome Ambitions volunteer. Awesome Ambitions reserves the right to decline any applicant without explanation.
We welcome all student and volunteer applications!
