The Urban Ranger Corps (URC) makes available to boys and young men ages 12-18 attending middle or high schools in the Kansas City Missouri School District or a Kansas City Charter School, a unique opportunity to develop the appropriate life skills necessary for them to become successful and contributing members of society. URC is designed to assist boys and young men in discovering their individual talents, skills and abilities while guiding them successfully from childhood to adulthood.
The young men we serve live in high-risk Kansas City neighborhoods having the highest police referral rates to Family Court (64100, 64127, 64128, 64130, 64132); all are enrolled in public or charter schools in Kansas City; the majority of them come from single parent households living at or below the poverty level; and all are exposed to prevelant criminogenic factors that include neighborhood economic deprivation; high crime and violence rates; availability of drugs; low expectations/aspirations for school; and chronic absenteeism. Our goal is to enroll young men in the program the summer before they enter 7th grade and retain them in the program until they graduate high school.
