Employer Resources

Join Hire KC Youth in its endeavor to engage and employ youth citywide.

Are you ready to connect a young person to his/her first break, a future mentor, or the ability to launch a career pathway altogether?

Exposing young people to real-world responsibilities, workplace culture, and on-the-job competencies ultimately transforms Kansas City’s workforce, professionals, and local economy.

We are building a library of resources for our partners and champions to get the most out of the HKCY experience, and to help you with your decision-making process and youth employment planning.
