Get Involved, Kansas City!

Get Involved, Kansas City!

“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”

— Winston Churchill

You already know that living in Kansas City today is incredible and it’s up to us to push Kansas City to greatness. So what will your role be? One beautiful option is to give freely of your time. Giving our time is even more precious than giving money (although that is important too!) as it is our most precious resource.

Beyond the feel-goods and karma, volunteering is a great way to:

  • Support a cause you care about
  • Share a skill
  • Experience new things
  • Meet people and make new friends
  • Gain leadership skills
  • Learn something new
  • Help others
  • Boost your resume
  • Be part of a team
  • Promote personal growth

Start Volunteering

Volunteering works best if you donate your time to something meaningful to you, whether that’s exercising a creative outlet, connecting with humans or animals, or improving a place you love. Here’s a good way to start:

  • Brainstorm the reasons you want to volunteer
  • Write a list of the causes that interest you
  • Identify how much time you have to give
  • Use a resource like The Call KC or VolunteerMatch to find opportunities that match your qualifications
  • Reach out to your identified organizations for opportunities

Choosing a Great Organization

There are a lot of great organizations in Kansas City. Here are are a few of my favorites:

Get Started

While getting started with a new endeavor can be overwhelming, there’s no better way to get started than to get started.
