Community Connector events

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


Find your community today - get in touch with our Young Adults Division Community Connectors Chair Julia Osburn!


Young Adults Division IMPACT series

IMPACT is a monthly series designed to help you get to know our Jewish community and give you a little Federation education. 


Whether you give $10 or $1,800, all young adults are welcome to join in our IMPACT experiences. Each month we visit one of our partner organizations, learn how Federation dollars support these organizations and our community, and participate in an activity or service project. 


Have an idea of an agency you think we should highlight? Interested in attending these experiences? Email Becca Levine at beccal@jewishkc.org.
