As Lonely Planet would say, “Wide open and inviting, Kansas City, is famed for its barbecues (100-plus joints smoke it up), fountains (more than 200; on par with Rome) and jazz. Attractive neighborhoods jostle for your attention and you can easily run aground for several days as you enjoy the local vibe, among the hippest in the Plains.”

Kansas City is a city on the rise. In 2015 alone, Kansas City  was featured on 25 nationwide “Best of” lists including:  9 Best U.S. Cities for Jobs, Friendliest Cities in America, 29 Cities All Twentysomethings Should Pick Up and Move To and the 20 Most Cultured Cities in America! The city offers something for everyone. Home to companies like Hallmark, H & R Block, Cerner and Sprint, the city’s commerce and economy is booming. The local sports teams (Chiefs, Royals, Sporting KC) aren’t doing half bad either!

Kansas City is a metropolis each person should experience, and City Year is thrilled to be here!
