boy scout troop 381
We are the sponsoring organization for Boy Scout Troop 381, enabling youth to develop their leadership skills, form healthy friendships, and pursue their dreams. Along with a few enthusiastic adult Scouters, they enjoy all kinds of outdoor activities together including a rich history of High Adventure outings, camping, hiking, canoeing, and caving to name a few.
The troop attends Camp Geiger near St. Joseph, MO, which affords great flexibility in planning and promotes Mic-O-Say activities.
The Troop hosts a chili dinner and cake auction & silent auction each December at the church as an annual fund raiser. Through these endeavors the Troop raises most of the money needed to cover the majority of their expenses.
The Troop Leader is John Lilak, but there are many active supportive parents who contribute to the troop's success.
The Mankind Project
Wednesdays nights 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the small chapel.
The ManKind Project flies in the face of rigid stereotypes about the "Sensitive New Age Man" AND the "Macho Man". We ask men to go right up to the edge - and beyond - in a culture that seems to be comfortable with mediocrity and passivity from men. We ask men to stop living a vicarious adventure through their TV's and step into a real time adventure to win back their passion for life.
The Kansas City Worker Justice Center is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization formed to empower low-income workers in the Kansas City metropolitan area by eliminating unjust employment practices.
At our monthly Workers Rights Clinics volunteer attorneys, students and other community members provide free assistance to workers with employment disputes, primarily involving unpaid wages. Workers are advised of their options, possible remedies, referred to other sources of assistance when necessary, educated about their rights and ways to avoid future problems. Workers are encouraged to be active in the resolution of their problems and in the creation of a more just labor environment..
