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 weekly Awesome Saturdays, we develop positive relationships with our Awesome girls and give them a voice.  We help them identify their goals and provide them with the space to explore and achieve them.

“Inherently, each one of us has the substance within to achieve whatever our goals and dreams define. What is missing from each of us is the training, education, knowledge and insight to utilize what we already have.”

― Mark Twain
