Kansas PRIDE Program

Week of PRIDE - May 22-30, 2016

Week of PRIDE

Week of PRIDE is May 22-30, 2016! Need help planning and implementing your projects? Don’t forget – our newest partner, the Kansas Masons!

Kansas Masons from Masonic Lodges across the state are excited to partner on your projects – In the past both Kansas PRIDE Communities and Kansas Masons have volunteered to make Kansas a great place to work and live – and now we are working together!

It is best to keep in mind that this is a new partnership, and like in any partnership, getting to know each other is the key. Once your local PRIDE organizations and Masonic Lodges get to know one another you will be able to discover how you might work best together.

Don’t be afraid to reach out to your local Masonic Lodge to see if they can assist you in your volunteer efforts during Week of PRIDE. You may have an active community member that is a Mason, or know someone who is a Mason. You might have a conversation with them to get things started. If you don’t have a quick contact, contact us and we can get you in contact with a lodge near you!

Also, this year we are partnering with 48 Hours of 4-H (484H) concerning cross promotion – this means that 4-H Groups across the state have been invited to partner with local PRIDE groups to help identify needs and assist in implementing projects!

If you need any help contacting a local Masonic Lodge or 4-H groups, email us at PRIDE@ksu.edu and we will get you some contact info.

Building Better Communities

The Kansas PRIDE Program is a partnership of K-State Research and Extension, the Kansas Department of Commerce, and Kansas PRIDE, Inc.

Kansas PRIDE is dedicated to serving communities across the state to encourage and assist local government and volunteers in making their community a better place to live and work.

Through the Kansas PRIDE program, local communities identify what they would like to preserve, create, or improve for their future. Then, working with the resources of K-State Research & Extension and the Kansas Department of Commerce, community volunteers pull together to create their ideal community future.
