Kansas City is more than just jazz, baseball, and BBQ. Recently we have been at the top of many lists for millennials for our financial accessibility and opportunity.
Many startups call KC home, which is representative of the spirit of innovation pulsing through the city. With over 200 alumni still in the region, there are many opportunities to connect and learn from your peers.
Kansas City also has a vibrant arts and music scene. During First Fridays in the downtown Crossroads district, art galleries open their doors to the public and bands perform in the streets. The Nelson-Atkins Art Museum offers Neoclassical exhibits and rotating guest exhibits.
You can also enjoy both men’s and women’s professional soccer, major and minor league baseball teams, women’s and men’s professional football, rugby and hockey all within the KC metro area. Kansas City is a small town in metropolitan form.
Our KC3+ campaign encourages and supports corps members staying in the classroom for a third year and beyond. We partner with several organizations to provide support to our teachers such as The Lean Lab, an alumni lead organization. The Lean Lab offers corps members opportunities to develop, promote, and share ideas to better education in our community.
You can find most of our corps members just south of the skyline in Midtown. Home to many diverse restaurants, bars, music venues, shops and Google fiber, Midtown offers big city amenities with a neighborly feel. Kansas City is a very drivable city, with most placement schools less than 20 minutes from the city center.
