What we're doing here at UKC is changing our city's future by positively impacting its present. Whether through coordinating volunteerism, managing events, educating students or supporting local makers, we created real, authentic transformation within our communities and citizens in 2017.
When I originally sat down to write this year-in-review post, I was ready for the victory lap. From our number of volunteers and completed service hours to the new partnerships and projects to our funding and staff increases, 2016 was our best year ever as organization. But as I poured over the numbers, documents and photos, my pride quickly became replaced with something quite different.
