Year-End Matching Grant Opportunity

Ryan and Heather Bresette generously agreed to match 2016 year-end donations to Green Works. Thanks to them, Green Works raised over $14,000 dollars from dozens of donors, and every single donation was doubled. The campaign is over, but read about one of our terrific students below and then please make a donation to Green Works through our regular donation page. Thank you for supporting our students and their future in the Kansas City workforce!


Meet Karla

Karla-BoatKarla lives in the Old Northeast area of Kansas City and attends East High School where she is known for her grin and positive attitude. Last year Karla took part in the ECOS program. She was so enthusiastic about the field trips that she became the official class photographer. Her favorite trip was the ride on the Missouri River – her first experience in a boat!

Karla-PlantingKarlaThis year Karla is taking part in our Accelerate program. She has completed three different career plans and is learning to manage her money. Recently she and her classmates took part in a career speed dating event as part of Accelerate.

Karla hopes to become a nurse after high school and we’re going to help her. This winter she’ll be paired with an adult mentor in the medical field who will help Karla create a resume and a LinkedIn account and help her prepare for practice interviews. Then this summer we’ll place Karla at an internship in the medical field. She’ll earn money, but most importantly she’ll expand her network, practice her job skills and gain meaningful work experience for her resume.Karla-Watershed

Our programming is important to Karla and all the students we work with at East, Northeast and Hogan high schools. Every week our staff and volunteers give their hearts to our students. We teach but we also listen, reassure and assist. Our students depend on us.

And we depend on you. With your support we can continue to be there for Karla and all the Karla’s to come. Thank you for investing in these deserving students – Kansas City’s future citizens and workforce.
