Summer is off to a great start. The entrepreneurs that came in both have roots in Kansas City and encouraged safety and support to our local communities. More information on these companies can be found below:
City Year is a national company that has been serving communities for over 31 years. They formed the local Kansas City branch a little over four years ago. The program provides extra support to struggling students and teachers. Mentors, ranging from ages 18 – 25, assist teachers with tutoring, attendance, behavior, and more to help supplement their existing academic plan. . In 2020, City Year plans on expanding to seven schools and adding 44 americorp members. Find out more about City Year here.
Tires are not at the top of mind for everyone. Checking to see if they need to be replaced or if they are safe to drive on once you have popped one can be time consuming. Zohr makes tire changes easy. They bring their tire changing vans to you, wherever you are. When Zohr visited our KC office, they created a live demonstration to teach our employees tire safety and just how easy their services are to use. Find out more about Zohr here.
