What is Launch?
Launch, a non-profit partner of Lee's Summit CARES, is dedicated to empowering, equipping, and preparing recent high school graduates in the Lee's Summit community. The idea is to help prepare You for your Next Big Thing
To reduce the suffering of our young adults, specifically as it relates to sexual violence and the prevailing culture dictating dating and relationships.
• Awaken our community to the real pressures young adults face in their relationships
• Facilitate safe and candid conversations that challenge teens to compare cultural pressures to their own relational desires and goals
• Present alternative relational scripts that cultivate healthier skills, habits and norms
The Launch Challenge
This no-essay scholarship can be used for any expense high school graduates incur in pursuit of their Next Big Thing, whether that adventure includes moving into the work force, joining the military, exploring a gap year, going to college, or something else. We call it Launch Money.
The Packing Party
Held in the summer, the Packing Party is a women's only event. Participants will enjoy a delicious meal, relevant presentations delivered by dynamic and knowledgable speakers, give aways, and more. Mothers are invited and encouraged to attend. The 2018 event is Tuesday, June 19th, from 6:00-10:00pm.
Stay tuned for similar programming for men, coming in 2019!
