Discovery Education

Our children are the future of our community. Through experiential learning, the Uncover KC Discovery Education Program provides opportunities for students to become active leaders within their schools and communities.

We facilitate project-based community service, volunteer outings, in-class projects, guest speakers and innovative educational technology to foster students’ social emotional learning, respect, self-worth and empathy. It also enhances students’ workforce skills while increasing their authentic social impact.
