Kansas City KS 66104 USA


Our mission is to utilize the arts to cultivate and develop self-empowerment, community service, higher education, and self-expression within adolescents aged 11-18.


In September 2009, we piloted an after school program in Kansas City, Kansas. With school support and volunteers we were able to build a great curriculum, bring in guest speakers, and transport students to various cultural events throughout the city. We've watch youth grow in their talents and become self motivated leaders among their peers. We've also worked hard to create partnerships and collaborations that will lead to making a impact with youth in the community. Collaborations with the YMCA and Poetry groups such as Om1 has led us to new heights.

Target demographics:

After School Program (6th-8th graders)Teen Mic Night ( 8th-12th graders)Low Income YouthAt-Risk

Geographic areas served:

My son has benefited greatly from his experience working with the leadership of YCN. They are a positive force in the community and Kansas City in general for all youth. They encourage teens to use their gifts and talents in a positive way and to make a difference in their own lives and community. I appreciate their faithfulness and commitment to our city and it's youth. My son looks forward to attending and meeting with the leaders and other youth to learn from one another and encourage each other too. I would highly recommend YCN!

YCN is good for expressing yourself. I like when we do shout outs. It helps me not to be shy. I like the snacks.If the program was not on Tuesday i would be at home on facebook and snapchat. When i come to the meting I i like meting new people.

YCN is the best. It has helped me a lot. We have had great experiences. We have a lot of fun games. YCN has taught me how to write better. If YCN was not here, I would not have met new people. Also, the shout outs are great. During the shout outs we get to say what we have done. My Tuesdays would be very boring if the program was not here. Kisses- Gimena =)
