The Learning Club
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. Every Monday for the past three years associates have been donating a couple hours of their day to help these students unlock their potential through one-on-one tutoring and life skills development, providing the keys to a better future.

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
We started fundraising for St. Jude in 2010 when an associates daughter was diagnosed with a brain tumor at the age of 11 months. This news effected 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 wont stop until no child dies from cancer. To learn more about St. Jude you can click here.
