Get Involved

A small investment can do so much, go so far, and create a big impact on young people and their futures.   

When you hire a young person or provide a meaningful work experience, young people are more engaged, more connected to community and more likely to succeed in and complete school. When you get involved with HKCY, you help your business or organization while helping KC’s youth gain employment this summer.             

Your organization and/or company can participate in Mayor James’ Hire KC Youth initiative by serving as a worksite or by hiring youth directly to work for your organization. Our goal is 100% participation from the KC community.  And it will take us all to do this right.  How will you commit?  

  • Partner >> Host or sponsor a HKCY intern
  • Invest >> Support our initiative with a tax deductible donation
  • Champion >> Align your own intern program or summer hiring under the HKCY collective
  • Participate >> Sponsor or participate in the Career Fair or other HKCY events

Thank you for doing your part in supporting KC’s youth. Your involvement is essential in building our future force.  

Next Steps:
  1. Get more resources and learn more about our managed internships
  2. Join forces as a Partner.
  3. Help us serve more youth – invest in our work.
  4. Show your support & be recognized as a Champion.
