Community Volunteer Events

Our mission is to encourage, educate and empower youth toward a healthy mind for a successful life.  One way we do that is by collaborating with like-minded  community organizations such as homeless shelters, group homes, treatment facilities and mental health organizations.  Our goal is to come alongside them to strength what they do, while also fulfilling our mission.  Visit our events page to see some ways that The Act of Compassion volunteers in the local Kansas City community!

Ambassadorship Program

The Ambassadorship Program is one comprised of volunteers from all backgrounds and professions who are eager to utilize their talents and passions to encourage, educate and empower young girls and women throughout the continent of Africa.  As an ambassador, you will be an expert in your field who will have the opportunity to impact communities, individuals and leaders.  We look forward to working with skillful and compassionate individuals who share our approach to service and teamwork.  Specific information about the Ambassadorship Program can be found below.  If you are interested in more information, please contact us here, and if you would like to apply to volunteer as an Ambassador, you can do so here.
