JA of Greater Kansas City EVENTS
At JA of Greater Kansas City, we host several events throughout the year to raise money to support our programming. These events also engage the community in our efforts to reach students! Whether you'd like to get involved on an individual level or as a business through event sponsorship, we offer several ways for you to support our work while having a great time!
Future Women's Leadership Forum
Your support of young women has never been more important. Opportunities for female mentors for our 2019 FWLF are now available. Mentors will accompany a young woman throughout the day, learning and sharing together at FWLF. Mentors encourage a young person as she navigates her path to future career and economic success. The day will include one-on-one time with your mentee, learning from a panel of women professionals on their path to success and applying important lessons from KC experts during breakout sessions.
JA Business Hall of Fame
Since 2001, the annual Hall of Fame event celebrates the achievements of business leaders who have made outstanding contributions to Kansas City. This year's laureates will join a group of prominent professionals, including Henry W. Bloch, Ewing Marion Kauffman, and Barnett and Shirley Helzberg, among many others.
