Community Connector events

Our YAD Community Connectors provide networking and community-building opportunities for Jews who are new or new-ish to KC and/or the Young Adults Division. These smaller outings and one-on-one meetups are meant to create meaningful connections.

Young Adults Division IMPACT series

IMPACT is designed to help you get to know our Jewish community and give you a little Federation education. Throughout the year, YAD hosts events with one of our partner organizations to learn how Federation dollars support these organizations and our community and participate in an activity or service project.
