Youth City Network KC Teen Mic Night

KC Teen Mic Night every last Thursday of the month. Teens can share their talent and also have conversation on topics important to them.

mission is to utilize the arts to cultivate and develop self-empowerment, community service, higher education, and self-expression within adolescents aged 11-18. "Self Respect, The Starting Point" 

Cost: Free

THE YOUTH WE SERVICE come from broken homes, qualify for the free lunch programs, in low income housing, and some live in shelters. Even though these kids have trials and issues beyond our control, they still make there way to our events and to our after school programs. We’ve seen a major growth in all of the youth we serve. Some have made better steps into becoming a leader, helping out more at home, and showing better attitude; which produce better grades.

Bone Marrow Drive

Ali Tolefree is a business owner, husband, and father of 3 from Kansas City, MO. In May, Ali was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia. Doctor's determined his best chance for survival was a bone marrow transplant. With no family matches available, Ali must rely on the national bone marrow registry.

More than half  of patients searching for a match will never receive one due to lack of donors on the national registry. Patients with ethnic backgrounds are even less likely to find a match due to lack of diversity on the registry. Ali's family and friends want to help Ali beat the odds by hosting a bone marrow donor drive. Register HERE!

It only takes a few minutes and the swab of a cheek to see if you could be a life-saving match for Ali! More than half  of patients searching for a match will never receive one due to lack of donors on the national registry. Patients with ethnic backgrounds are even less likely to find a match due to lack of diversity on the registry. (For more facts that relate to African American donors see below) Ali's family and friends along with the Aim4Peace violence prevention program want to help Ali beat the odds by hosting a bone marrow donor drive.
