Employer Resources


Whether it’s your first time or a well-established part of your organization’s culture, internship programming should be much more than just a season of temporary assistance in an office or workplace. When it comes to establishing an internship program that is rewarding to both the hosted intern and hosting professional(s) the experience must embrace growth-mindedness and value work-based learning experiences.

Not all interns are the same; motivation and maturity levels, skill sets and set goals vary from one young person to the next. The same can be said about how adults supervise, guide, coach, and inspire. As Kansas City’s clearinghouse of work-based engagement opportunities, Hire KC also aims to assist organizations discover the best parts of themselves through the development of intentional, innovative, and project-based work experiences for young people.
