Important Dates:

  • Mission Adelante is holding a Volunteer Training on Saturday, January 9 to familiarize and orient new volunteers to our whole ministry as well as the area in which they’ll serve. We ask that each volunteer attend this training once, preferably at the beginning of his or her first term serving.  The training will be at the Mission Adelante facility located at 22 S. 18th Street in Kansas City, KS 66102. We’ll begin with a continental breakfast at 9:00 a.m. and wrap-up at 1:00 p.m. Lunch will be served from a local Mexican restaurant (a $5 contribution is suggested).
  • All volunteers that will serve with the Latino and Bhutanese outreach programs this spring are invited to attend our All Volunteer Huddle & Dessert on Monday, January 11 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Mission Adelante.  We want to get everyone on the same page for a great launch, as well as to give you a chance to connect with the rest of the volunteers before you disperse to the various programs.
