Throughout the year, The Call KC teams up with community partners and events to help fund its outreach efforts among the city’s youth. Thus, in return for the organization’s volunteer recruitment/management services, they receive donations that then allow them to grow and enhance their free education programs.
To volunteer at one of these events, such as Kansas City Chiefs games, election polling stations and pub crawls, sign-up here. The Call KC works to make community service easier by recruiting and connecting volunteers with organizations that need their help.
Listed below are some recurring volunteer opportunities.
