As the signature program of Royals Charities, The Kansas City Urban Youth Academy empowers Kansas City’s youth through baseball and softball, as well as academic and social opportunities, to be leaders of tomorrow.

The Academy is committed to providing a positive environment, while educating our Academy participants on what it means to be a “professional” on and off the field. We surround them with coaches, mentors, and role models who can teach them how to play the games of baseball and softball while also serving as examples of good citizenship.

Through our training, education, and character development programs, we build a strong foundation for Academy participants, based on work ethic, leadership, responsibility, accountability, and moral principles. This foundation will allow Academy participants to acquire that unwavering strength of purpose that is the keynote of all individual success.

About Royals Charities

Royals Charities strives to support children, education, youth baseball and softball programming, and military families in and around the Kansas City area. The foundation accomplishes this mission through financial grants of life-changing projects and programs.
