What is a Connector?
A Connector believes in Hire KC’s mission to connect young people to internships and opportunity. They help to support our work and share our message in some meaningful way. Connectors hold the key to faces and places in the Kansas City region by connecting Hire KC to the people and employers, where opportunity lives.
What kind of Connector can you be?
Community Connectors support Hire KC by providing access and experiences to interns. Whether it be introducing Hire KC to a potential internship or partner opportunity, hosting a venue for a workshop or presentation, or spreading awareness of Hire KC’s mission through networking and social media, Community Connectors play an integral part in helping Hire KC spread throughout the Kansas City community.
Resource Connectors support Hire KC monetarily. Donations of any size can be put toward an internship, or a whole internship can be sponsored by a Resource Connector. Upon the sponsorship of an internship, the Connector may decide where the internship will take place. Each whole internship costs approximately $2,500 per intern. Resource Connectors enable Hire KC to build on its internship program and work toward providing internship experiences to a broader range of Kansas City’s young people.
Opportunity Connectors support Hire KC through opportunity and internship creation. Being an Opportunity Connector means providing at least one internship for an emerging professional within the Connector’s industry. Opportunity Connectors are vital to the sustainability of Hire KC because they are providing the workforce experiences and opportunities for our interns to succeed.
You can help by sharing and connecting Hire KC to who you know and where opportunity lives so that our youth can find it, see it and be it.
