Benton Community Garden

The Santa Fe neighborhood initiated the garden at Benton and Linwood Boulevards as an effort to beautify the area. Historic Green and US Green Building Council Central Plains chapter partnered to execute the project. Phase I involved the installation of low-carbon concrete sidewalks, a 2500-gallon underground water tank, a rainwater capture system, and a beautiful double-action hand pump the residents use to water their flowers or vegetables.

The Youth Leadership Cohort (YLC)

The Youth Leadership Cohort (YLC) seeks to identify high school students from Kansas City's urban core and immerse them in a leadership development curriculum. Students will be trained in the principles of community organizing, leadership, policy and civic engagement. The goal of the program is to help students understand the importance of active citizenship while equipping them with the necessary tools to engage their local communities and schools to address systemic change issues.

Leaders in Training

Many of our youth find themselves behind in key developmental areas such as education, character, and interpersonal skills. Leaders In Training is committed to giving Hope Center youth all that they need to reach their full potential.
