In a month, on Saturday, April 22, 2017 from 9:00 a.m. to Noon, the annual Hire KC Youth Career Fair commences at the MCC - Business and Technology Campus. We'd like you to encourage youth to register in advance for this event. Here is the link to share with your school community: https://hirekcyouthcareerfair.eventbrite.com. Last year over 1500 youth attended, and this year we predict even more. *It promises to connect youth with employers and experiential exposure to discover career and college pathways.
*In addition to applying online via the Hire KC Youth website for summer jobs and internships - hirekcyouth.org - we are also encouraging youth to level up and attain digital badges in the realm of interview-readiness, financial literacy, and professionalism using the LRNG KC platform (lrng.org/kc). Feel free to explore its featured badges: Get the Job, Cha Ching, and On the Job.
Cynthia Newsome Visited Seniors
On March 23, 2017 Cynthia Newsome visited the seniors at the Student Engagement Center to speak with them about journalism, broadcasting, and her non-profit organization. Newsome is the midday anchor for 41 Action News. She came to 41 Action News in January of 1997. She started her broadcast career in radio, but decided to try television when she realized her mom would not give her a break when it came to reaching her goals. Newsome’s mother was her inspiration. Newsome says, “She would not let me rest. She wanted me to grow.” Shortly after she arrived at 41, she founded a non-profit mentoring coalition called “Awesome Ambitions” -- it serves middle and high school girls in the Kansas City metro area. This program helps them achieve success in terms of their health, education, and future careers. Senior Tedeja Dean stated, “I thought Mrs. Newsome was very inspirational; she was very well spoken, honest, and makes me want to take a journalism course at UMKC.” In addition to her philanthropic responsibilities, Newsome is also an award winning journalist who loves what she does. She stated, “I like knowing what's going on. I get to be in and out of people’s lives. I plan on being there until I’m 65 years old!” Senior Mai Anh Le said, “Mrs. Newsome inspired me to step out of my comfort zone and to never fear change.” For more information on Awesome Ambitions, please click on the link below.
