over 20 years of
to become successful women
Awesome Ambitions was established in 1997. Since that time it has been our quest to inspire young women to set high goals for themselves and give them the tools to achieve them. Our combination of mentoring, education, and building a strong women-led community has proven a successful model for exceeding even the most ambitious objectives!
Through our monthly seminars called Awesome Saturdays, college tours, visits to local business and colleges, as well as special events at theaters and museums, we are developing positive relationships with our Awesome girls and showing them how to navigate life. We are giving them the opportunity to identify and achieve the goals they set for themselves.
Awesome Ambitions partners with the Kansas City Public Schools, see our mentoring report card below.
