Through experiential learning, the Uncover KC Discovery Education Program provides opportunities and structure for students to become active leaders within their schools and communities. This is accomplished by facilitating sustainable, engaging impact for students through community service based initiatives, off-campus volunteer outings, in-class projects or speakers, and innovative technology.

These experiences provide an environment for respect, empathy and compassion to flourish, while also giving students authentic tools to become the social leaders of tomorrow. Built around the outcomes of self-awareness, leadership, community involvement, belong and reflection, the program positively impacts society by shaping the very generations that will soon lead it.
