Become a Ranger

Who can apply for the 2023-2024 program season?

All applicants will be selected for the URC program based on the following criteria:

1. The Urban Ranger Corps (URC) serves boys and young men ages 12 to 18 throughout the Kansas City Metropolitan area. URC is uniquely designed to assist members in discovering their individual talents, skills and abilities while guiding them successfully from boyhood to manhood.

2. The URC program is not a summer camp. We are a year-round program that has unique stop and start dates for the summer session and school-year session.

3. All applicants selected for the URC program will be selected based on the following criteria:

  • Applicants must be in the 6th and 7th grade during the current 2022-2023 academic school year to apply.

  • We are not accepting applications from students who are currently in the 8th grade or higher.

  • Applications must be filled out completely and submitted on time. If an application is submitted late or incomplete, it will not be reviewed.

  • Applicants can reside anywhere within the Kansas City Metropolitan area including the counties of Jackson, Johnson or Wyandotte. Targeted enrollment will take place with students who live in the following zip codes: 64110, 64127, 64128, 64130, or 64132.

  • Applicants must participate in a formal interview with Urban Ranger Corps staff. Applicants must have a neat, clean and professional appearance.

  • All applicants must provide a current physical (within 12 months).

  • All applicants must attach their most recent grade/report card during the current 2022-2023 school year. No grades, no interview!

4. Acceptance into the URC program represents a partnership between the participant, his family and the organization. We expect all parties to uphold a commitment to this partnership and believe that it is essential to the overall success of the participant.

5. Applications are due on or before Friday, March 31, 2023. If you have questions about this application packet or have any other concerns, please call our office at 816-333-6455.
