While everyone is celebrating the start of summer, we here at Uncover KC are celebrating the completion of our Discovery Education Program’s first official year. My name is Jenn Bowden and as Director of Programming, I had the pleasure of working with thousands of students, teachers and administrators from 21 schools across Kansas City. And needless to say, we’re thrilled with the impact they made…
Helping people uncover their passions and get involved in the community is a wonderful mission. One in which I’m very excited and committed to make happen. Thus, I’m here to help raise the money needed to support and further those aspirations.
On May 5, 2019, we held our first annual Uncover KC Pickleball Tournament at Chicken N' Pickle. The Cinco De Mayo festivities include great food, amazing prizes and exciting competition.
Out of all of those amazing experiences, there's still one thing that broadened my skill set more than other project — having the opportunity to job shadow Brent, Lauren, and Jenn each and every day. In the past four months, I have built upon my professionalism by simply watching how my coworkers dealt with real world projects and issues.
To be able to help connect organizations with people who want to volunteer is the kind of act that has my name written all over it. Uncover KC gives me the chance to help out others while also becoming the person I want to be.
