SNACK SHACK KC

A safe neighborhood place for youth to gather.


 

 

 

The Snack Shack KC is a safe and fun place for young people to gather, play games, do homework and, of course, snack! Snack Shack was the vision of high school youth entrepreneurs in Youthfront’s Imagine Argentine social entrepreneurship program. It began as a summer venture more than five years ago, but thanks to neighborhood and volunteer support, it operates as a safe hangout space for youth year-round. 

Snack Shack counts on youth and adult volunteers. Your presence in this space is so important to the growth of students and our ministry. Get involved and apply to volunteer here.

SPECIAL NOTE: Due to Covid-19, Snack Shack’s operations are limited to youth and volunteers in its Learning Pod program. If you know a student who needs help with virtual learning, Learning Pods offer reliable devices, internet access and adult mentors. If you’re willing to help students in the program, volunteers are needed 8-noon Monday-Thursday. Apply to be part of our Volunteer Team.

Our location: The Snack Shack KC is located adjacent to the Argentine branch of the Kansas City Public Library at 3112 Strong Ave., Kansas City, KS. 

SPECIAL NOTE: Due to Covid-19, Snack Shack’s operations are limited to youth and volunteers in its Learning Pod program. We are limiting the number of students in the facility, encourage hand washing and sanitizing and are requiring face masks until further notice.
