KANSAS CITY, Mo. — COVID-19 has canceled in-person learning at schools, limited summer activities, and created a crisis for Kansas City kids this summer.
So FOX4 teamed up with KC Common Good to help families, educators, and communities keep kids mentally healthy and motivated to succeed this summer.
You can watch our Working for Youth Summit featuring Mayor Quinton Lucas, Wesley Hamilton and leaders from organizations across Kansas City in the video player at the top of the page. They address the challenges of our youth, have inspiring messages and provide the resources to overcome adversity.
As part of the Working for Youth Summit, our panelists answered questions directly from Kansas City kids, offering advice from their own experiences. Plus, Kansas City organizations highlighted summer activities available now and the resources available to help kids address conflicts.
FOX4 is Working for Youth to keep our kids connected and prepare them for a successful future. Visit the Working for Youth resource page now for a list of youth organizations, resources, internship opportunities and summer activities.
