Frontier District

Kansas PRIDE Program

The Kansas PRIDE Program is a partnership of K-State Research and Extension, the Kansas Department of Commerce, and Kansas PRIDE, Inc.

Kansas PRIDE is dedicated to serving communities across the state to encourage and assist local government and volunteers in making their community a better place to live and work. 

Through the PRIDE Program, local communities identify what they would like to preserve, create, or improve for their future. Then, working with the resources of K-State Research & Extension and the Kansas Department of Commerce, community volunteers pull together to create their ideal community future. 

In the Frontier Extension District, PRIDE Programs are located in the cities of: 

  • Burlingame
  • Greeley
  • Lyndon
  • Melvern
  • Osage City
  • Overbrook
  • Quenemo

Week of PRIDE is May 21-27, 2017
Week of PRIDE is a call to action for PRIDE communities to improve their towns during the last week of May. 

Who to Involve?
PRIDE communities are encouraged to partner with:

  • Local 4-H groups - In 2017 Week of PRIDE is cross promoting with 484H!
  • Masonic Lodges - Contact a LOCAL LODGE to get a connection established. 

Challenge: Use Week of PRIDE in Kansas, May 21-27, 2017, as an opportunity to collaborate and make difference in your community! The goal is to show just how much PRIDE there is in Kansas. Work accomplished and hours spent can be reported on the Kansas PRIDE Program Website. 

To help you get started, see the Week of PRIDE Guidebook.
