Monthly task force sessions offer Centurions an in-depth look at our region, focusing on subjects like economic development, law and justice, innovation, transportation, education, and manufacturing, among others. An annual benchmarking visit to another city gives Centurions a chance to contrast that community’s issues and best practices with our own.
Every year, Centurions participate in thousands of hours in community service to local nonprofits, another way to immerse themselves in the KC community. In addition, each Centurions class selects a Legacy Project, with a goal to leave a lasting impact beyond individual service hours. Kansas City Community Gardens, Turn the Page KC, and Amethyst Place are just three of the organizations who’ve benefited.
Centurions, with the support of KC Chamber staff, serve as committee and task force chairs guiding the work of the program. There are plenty of opportunities to develop leadership skills, whether serving on the Steering Committee, monthly task force committees, the Legacy Project, and more.
