Description

The 2019 Hire KC Internship Summit is for juniors/seniors in high school, and college students to check out a variety of opportunities for paid summer internships from area employers.



Last year, Hire KC connected young people to over 250 internships at 191 worksites across the public, private and nonprofit sectors.

  • 71% of Hire KC interns expect to earn a graduate degree
  • 86% of Hire KC interns say they are going to explore a new interest based on things they learned in their summer internship
  • 90% of Hire KC interns pursued an internship to "gain professional experience"

Hire KC’s mission is to support opportunity, equity, and illuminate career pathways so that all youth can learn and grow into promising futures. Hire KC provides access and connects young people to work-based opportunities, learning and experiences that will lead them to brighter futures and better prepare them for the jobs of tomorrow.

The KC Social Innovation Center manages Hire KC and works to engage and support a variety of business partners, increasing the number of internship and work-based opportunities so we can serve more youth while continuing to innovate and experiment with new tools, platforms and methodologies to improve youth talent and workforce development at scale.
