HISTORY

20/20 Leadership History

The 20/20 Leadership program began in 1993 with 36 students and a budget of $3,500 for the 9-month program junior program. In 2002, the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation and the Garth Brooks “Teammates for Kids” provided grants to expand the program from Wyandotte into Jackson County, Missouri and Johnson County in Kansas. In 2003, the decision to file for the 501(c)(3) status was made by the Board of Directors and approval notification was received six weeks later. The Sprint Foundation has supported program development and growth in both Kansas and Missouri and promoted the development of the 20/20 Olympics.

The Sprint Foundation continues to support 20/20 Leadership along with other foundations and businesses. In 2010, the Kansas City Royals awarded 20/20 Leadership the State Farm Insurance Good Neighbor Award. In 2012, 20/20 Leadership was inducted in the Mid-American Education Hall of Fame.
