Youth Program: Write Brain
Write Brain is a STEAM-based summer enrichment program for youth in 3rd-5th grades. Youth will be served breakfast and lunch and engage in a writing workshop. At the end of the six-week summer enrichment program, youth will have authored and illustrated their own book that they will receive, and in addition, one will be made public and shared with the community.
Our 2022 UNI Gala!
is the signature fundraising event for Kansas City’s Urban Neighborhood Initiative.
The proceeds support our mission to improve the quality of life in our community through affordable housing, home repairs, and quality after school and summer time youth activities.
Embrace your inner child while investing in quality urban neighborhood development
