The Green Impact Zone is co-sponsoring a hiring fair on Sept. 17 with the Kansas City Chamber of Commerce’s Urban Neighborhood Initiative (UNI) and the Urban League. The hiring fair will take place at St. James United Methodist Church at 56th and Paseo from 9 a.m.–2 p.m. Job seekers should arrive with resumes and come dressed for a pre-screening interview. Employers with job openings can register for a booth on the Green Impact Zone webpage.

The zone, UNI, and the Urban League want to cultivate commitments with potential employers to hire residents from the central city on an ongoing basis.
