Learning Club of KCK is an after-school and summer tutoring/mentoring program for high-risk children in Kansas City, KS. They seek out the most disadvantaged children, meeting in high-poverty areas so that even students who lack transportation and parental support can attend.

We started fundraising for St. Jude in 2010 when an associate’s daughter was diagnosed with a brain tumor at the age of 11 months. This news affected all of us here at RYAN, and that is when we started getting involved with the St. Jude community in Kansas City. Every year we attend the St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer, along with friends and family members, in support of children who are battling cancer and other life-threatening diseases. We share the same mentality that we won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.
