Around 6:15 p.m. Brad Grabs from the Learning Club of KCK will give a reflection.
Brad Grabs is the CEO and Executive Director of the Learning Club of KCK, an after-school and summer program for children in the urban core. Grabs graduated from Notre Dame with a degree in accounting but later discovered his passion for working with children on the margins of society after serving for a year in the Vincentian Service Corps. He then began teaching at Rockhurst Jesuit High School in Kansas City and chose to live in an impoverished area of the urban core. In 2002, he left his job at Rockhurst and started the Learning Club of KCK. With the help of many people, including classmates from Notre Dame, Grabs has expanded the Learning Club to serve over 120 children each week at five different sites.
