About Us

Awesome Ambitions was established in 1997 to educate, inspire, and empower 8th through 12th grade girls in the greater Kansas City area. Today, we continue to help them  set  and achieve positive goals for their wellness, education, and future careers.

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.
