Youth Guidance is delighted to announce the launch of BAM® and WOW® in Kansas City, MO in January 2021.  

BAM and WOW are highly engaging school-based counseling and mentoring programs that promote social-emotional and psychological well-being, strong school engagement, and increased academic attainment for students in grades 7-12.

We’re partnering with Hickman Mills C-1 School District to provide programming at Smith-Hale Middle School and Ruskin High School. BAM and WOW’s work in Kansas City are supported by GreenLight Fund Kansas City, Mayor Quinton Lucas and the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation.

Becoming A Man® and Working On Womanhood

BAM and WOW’s work in Kansas City is made possible through a wonderful partnership with Hickman Mills C-1 School District and with philanthropic support from GreenLight Fund Kansas City 

We envision a bright, healthy future for every student and look forward to supporting students as they recognize and realize their potential.

Our long-term strategy for Kansas City is to sustain services in Hickman Mills C-1 School District while also expanding to serve other schools and students in metropolitan Kansas City.
