Kansas PRIDE Program


Week of PRIDE - May 22-30, 2016


 In the spring of 2016, the Kansas PRIDE program partnered with 48 Hours of 4-H, inviting 4-H clubs to partner with PRIDE Organizations for volunteer opportunities during Week of PRIDE 2016.

In the spring of 2016:

356 adults and 241 youth in 25 PRIDE communities spent 2,309 hours planning and implementing community improvement projects

Raised over $26,460 to invest into their communities

4-H contributes - 74 youth from 15 4-H clubs assisted in 11 communities

One county (Allen County) had a meet and greet between the PRIDE Communities in the county, the 4-H clubs and the local Masons to bring everyone up to speed about programs, efforts and opportunities!

Building Better Communities

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