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.
