If you are under 18 and are eligible to participate, you will be asked to have a consent form signed by your parent or guardian, giving you their permission. If you are over 18, you will be asked to sign a consent form prior to the start of the program. Most positions require that your permanent residence is in the Greater Kansas City metropolitan area.Remember that there are more youth applying to Hire KC Youth than there are openings.
We do not guarantee you will receive an interview, paid internship, or job, and we strongly encourage you to apply for other opportunities that you may discover in your community, or that a teacher, friend or family member has shared with you. We encourage you to explore the Hire KC Youth website. The resource section offers valuable information on topics ranging from how to prepare for an interview, to opening a bank account and applying to college; plus links to work-ready credentials can be earned to show your initiative and skills to potential employers. All Hire KC Youth applicants have access to join LRNG KC - a web and mobile site where you can develop your skills, prepare for employment, and even unlock access to new opportunities. Some jobs, like most internships, will require some pre-work earning digital badges in order for you to be eligible for placement.
If you have any questions about the application process or the HKCY program, feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org or text us at (816) 298-8280.We hope that you have a great summer!
