Shaping Awesome Futures
Awesome Ambitions has been going strong for more than 20 years helping mentor young women to have successful futures through higher education, career planning, and planning for future preparedness.
Awesome Ambitions 2019 Kicks Off!
Please Join US This Giving Tuesday and Support Awesome Girls Take On Kenya
Awesome Ambitions is planning another Awesome adventure in June 2020. For the first time, Awesome Ambitions is partnering with the international non-profit organization, Days for Girls. They make re-usable feminine hygiene products for girls in remote areas of the world. Awesome Ambitions has purchased the fabric and have helped Days for Girls in Shawnee, sew the kits for girls in Eldoret, Kenya.
We have 20 people (14 girls and 6 adult volunteers) traveling to hand deliver the kits to the girls. In addition to taking reusable famine hygiene kits to 100 girls at the high school in Eldoret, Kenya, our Awesome girls will get to know the Kenyan girls by spending the day at school to see what is taught and learn about the education process in Eldoret. Awesome girls will also visit the home of some of the high school girls to discover what life is like for the teen girls. Finally, we will connect with the community in Kenya by hosting a community culture exchange dinner with Eldoret leaders and some community groups. We’ll enjoy food and music and dance from the Eldoret community. Awesome girls will share songs and poetry and talk about what the experience of traveling to Kenya has meant to them.
Awesome Ambitions girls are already exchanging videos with the Kenyan girls and a bond is already forming which we believe will help our girls embrace people of different cultures and religions the most important lesson is that our Awesome Anbitions girls will realize that they can make a difference in the world!

We'd love to hear from you
I did not know anyone in Kansas City when I first moved here. The group helped me meet new people and learn how to encourage women to succeed. I am in College now and am volunteering as a mentor this year.
Awesome Ambitions Helped me get into a great college and now I am able to volunteer and give back to the younger generations! Thank you to all the volunteers and sponsors who made it happen, I was able to get scholarships I didn’t even know existed.
