Startland News recently covered a story on Working for Youth, a collaborative initiative to provide paid internships for teens throughout Kansas City. The DeBruce Foundation is proud to help fund the initiative and provide tools to increase career literacy.

Working For Youth also partnered with 33 community partners, such as… The DeBruce Foundation, which is giving participants access to its Agile Work Profiler solution.

“[It’s] an online survey for individuals to discover their strengths and interests and how those line up with work activities,” said Leigh Anne Taylor Knight, who serves as the executive director and chief operating officer for The Debruce Foundation. “It is a great first step toward career literacy, which can help them set up for long term success.”
