C-10 Mentoring & Leadership

Applications for the 2020-21 school year for current high school freshmen and sophomores, plus mentors, will open in spring 2020. To be among the first to know when, sign up for our newsletter.



C-10 Mentoring & Leadership offers high school students the opportunity for mentoring and exposure to an abundance of resources to learn life and career skills. Weekly programs offer a range of topics utilizing guest speakers focused on one of CYITML’s C’s, ACT prep coursework, resume writing, assistance filling out job or college applications, and giving back to the community through monthly service projects. Each student has his or her own mentor to help ensure success.

Royals General Manager and CYITML Founder/Executive Director Dayton Moore kicked off the 2018-19 school year by talking about “Character” with our inaugural class of students, parents/guardians, and mentors on Aug. 29, 2018, at the Kansas City MLB Urban Youth Academy.

Purpose of C-10 Mentoring & Leadership:

  • To develop and experience life and leadership skills based on each CYITML “C”: Character, Care, Coach, Competitor, Commitment, Composure, Comprehension, Concentration, Confidence, Courage.
  • To learn life and career skills, such as money management, resume writing, filling out college and/or job applications, interviewing, shopping for and preparing food, and changing a tire and the oil in a vehicle.
  • To experience on-the-job training through shadowing.
  • To gain a greater sense of community through monthly service projects.

Goals for the Program:

  • Help students excel academically.
  • Teach students the value of being physically and spiritually healthy, the importance of avoiding drugs, alcohol, and gangs, and the importance of healthy relationships.
  • Offer students real-life work experiences.
  • Promote community service in greater Kansas City.
  • Develop a servant leadership model with each student.
