Interns of the future line up for summer jobs

BY BRIAN BURNES – The Kansas City Star

Saturday was a beautiful spring morning.

More than 250 young Kansas City residents spent it getting ready for summer.

They filled Pierson Auditorium at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, lining up for summer jobs and internships at the ninth annual Bright Future Employment Fair. Resumes in hand, they met with representatives of 15 city departments and four private employers.

“Young people may be only about 30 percent of our population, but they are 100 percent of the future,” Mayor Sly James told the assembled applicants before the interviewing began. “We have to start training the next group of leaders. That’s you.”

The fair, organized by the Mayor’s Office of Civic and Community Engagement, is part of a larger initiative aimed at giving Kansas City young people a variety of work and play options during the summer.
