SAVE THE DATE:  AN APS STUDENT-PRODUCED PROGRAM  |  APRIL 25, 2024

The Kansas City metro saw its deadliest year on record in 2023 as the community experienced 269 gun-related deaths. Join American Public Square at Jewell for their annual student-produced program which will take a deeper look into the role education plays in the lives of urban youth at a time when firearm violence is feeling all too normal.

Registration coming soon!


The APS Civics Education Initiative Student Initiative takes the APS mission into schools and partnerships with teachers, students and administrators at both the high school and college level. The initiative includes a custom-developed high school curriculum focused on learning about misinformation, disinformation, and bias, and college-level internship opportunities that enable students to produce compelling and relevant programs on significant and difficult issues in our community.
