About the Event

Away from the borders and coasts, Kansas City-area students are often surprised to find just how many international academic and professional opportunities await them. This unique college and career fair brings students to the table, with dozens of international businesses, organizations, colleges, and universities, to show them just how global their future can be.

In 2022, Your Global Future will combine aspects of previous years to offer:

  • Trade show-style college and career fair where businesses, universities, and organizations will come together under the same roof to interact with hundreds of area high school students
  • In-school assemblies in the weeks leading up to the Your Global Future event featuring speakers from sponsoring organizations
  • Follow-up real world learning visits by students to sponsoring organizations.
