Youth Ambassadors believes the success of any community program lies in its ability to nurture and grow neighborhood alliances. With this belief, Youth Ambassadors continues to make it a priority to collaborate with other organizations in our community in an effort to better serve our youth. Argentine Youth Ambassadors is the result of a unique partnership with the Argentine Neighborhood Development Association (ANDA) and the Argentine Betterment Corporation (ABCKCK) in Kansas City, Kansas. Both organizations promote the revitalization of the Argentine community. www.andakck.org www.abckck.org For our Missouri sites, Youth Ambassadors partners with the DeLaSalle Education Center and the Upper Room at the Mary L. Kelly community center. Both partnerships help make it possible to provide neighborhood sites within walking distance for our youth. www.delasallecenter.org www.marykellycenter.org YA partners with Gordon Parks Elementary in Kansas Ci, Missouri, and The Learning Club of Wyandotte County, Kansas to provide mentoring opportunities for our Ambassadors. Both programs are invaluable to the empowerment of our teenagers. www.gordonparks.org www.thelearningclubkck.org Other valued partners include: VML, Children’s Mercy Hospital, UMKC, Rockhurst University, KCPT ReDream Initiative, the Greater KC Chamber of Commerce ResilientKC Initiative, Pembroke High School English writing club, The Black Community Foundation.
