Kansas City Tomorrow

The Kansas City Tomorrow (KCT) leadership program is a selective, year-long experience that prepares senior-level business and community leaders for civic engagement in the Kansas City region.

Developing Civic Leaders

KCT graduates are prepared to assume leadership roles in the community, through appointment or election to public office, by serving on the boards of nonprofit organizations, or getting involved in key issues facing the region. Features of this Civic Council program include:

  • A curriculum structured around the Kansas City region’s most pressing issues, opportunities, and challenges
  • Monthly, day-long sessions featuring interaction with many of Kansas City’s most influential civic leaders
  • An approach that stresses analysis, decision making, and building effective community leadership skills
  • The opportunity to build new, deep relationships with the 25 members of the KCT class

Over the course of the program, KCT participants will explore topics through the lens of the regional KC Rising initiative: education & workforce, innovation & entrepreneurship, industries poised for growth, quality of place, public policy and economic inclusion.

Prospective KCT participants are nominated by a member of the Civic Council in time for the annual selection process in May. A tuition fee of $6,500 covers the cost of the program, with a reduced rate offered to participants employed by Civic Council member businesses. A very limited amount of scholarship assistance is available. For more information contact cross@kcciviccouncil.org or call 816-983-2304.
