More than 3,000 students from Kansas City-area middle schools and high schools got a glimpse of public service careers during the first-ever CORE4 Youth Career Expo held Tuesday at Bartle Hall. The students came from roughly four dozen schools.

Hosting the event were the metropolitan area’s four core local governments  the city of Kansas City, Mo.; Jackson County, Mo.; Johnson County, Kan; and the Unified Government of Wyandotte County and Kansas City, Kan. Other municipalities on hand included Gladstone, Lee’s Summit, and Shawnee.

Exhibitors included emergency-response personnel, human service agencies, parks staff, and public works departments. Some scenes from the day are below.
