Hire KC Youth - from City Hall to Citywide

 

Hire KC Youth is the signature youth employment program from Kansas City, Missouri Mayor Sly James.  Expanding in Summer 2017 from City Hall to a citywide initiative dedicated to unlocking opportunity and connecting youth to future careers in Kansas City, the mission is to connect more young people and grant them access to a range of work-based learning opportunities. Our objective is to improve the social and economic outcomes of the region’s youth by attracting, aligning, and investing resources in coordinated, next-generation youth workforce programs.

The KC Social Innovation Center is the managing partner of the Hire KC Youth initiative, in coordination with the Full Employment Council as the workforce partner. Both agencies utilize their connections to businesses, nonprofits, philanthropy, schools and higher education and workforce agencies to convene, organize and create meaningful opportunities and work-site experiences for the young people in our community; and to provide support and resources for businesses that pledge to hire HKCY summer interns.  Visit Hire KC Youth for more information.
