INSPIRE – UNITE – EMPOWER
Our organization is inspiring a better future by uniting our community through culture and by empowering the next generation through education.
KC BizFest offers high school sophomores, juniors and seniors in the Greater Kansas City area an opportunity to learn a variety of life skills and business techniques. The majority of KC BizFest participants come from the emerging Latino Community but everyone is invited to apply. During a four-day intensive training seminar, KC BizFest focuses on helping students turn hobbies and skills into profit-making ventures, establish entrepreneurial and leadership goals, create plans for business and life, and become effective leaders and team players.
The Greater Kansas City Hispanic Collaborative is the primary presenter in partnership with the Greater Kansas City Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and its partners: more than 15 funding supporters including corporations, small businesses, colleges and universities.
Approximately 100 sophomore, junior, and senior high school students will be selected to participate in KC BizFest.
The online application is due by the end of November. Applicants will be notified of their acceptance by the end of December. Please call (816) 472-6767 for more information.
The KC BizFest program is four days in length. The first three days of the program are devoted to training, workshops, and presentations. On the fourth day students finalize their projects and then a graduation ceremony is held.
Note: Parents are invited to attend the graduation ceremony.
