Children, Youth & Families

Urban Youth Academy

The Foundation’s grantmaking in the area of Children, Youth and Families seeks to improve well-being among vulnerable children and families. The Kansas City Urban Youth Academy is an exciting partnership between Major League Baseball, philanthropy, and social services agencies that will benefit Kansas City youth. Opening in early 2018 in the 18th and Vine district, the Academy is a 21-acre complex where children ages 6-18 can come after school and on weekends to practice and learn more about baseball and softball. Two baseball and two softball fields will be available for practice, games and tournaments. There will also be areas for children to learn about other careers in sports and receive mentoring, life skills training and homework help from local social service agencies. The Foundation is excited about the possibilities surrounding this organization for both the children and the 18th and Vine District.
