Community Service

Kansas City Young Matrons is a volunteer organization of over 300 women. Since 1917, KCYM has helped community members who are in need, partnering with established, non-profit institutions throughout the greater Kansas City area. Our members contribute time and talent in ways that are not always seen, but are felt, one woman and child at a time.


2024-2025 Board of Directors


Our Board of Directors for 2023-2024 is comprised of 18 dedicated women who plan, guide and oversee the development of KCYM current and future projects. The Directors meet monthly and work regularly with Standing Committee Chairs to ensure the continuity of the Club’s volunteer activities and programs.
