Transportation YOU

 

Transportation_YOU_Logo

Transportation YOU is a hands-on, interactive, mentoring program that offers young girls ages 13-18 an introduction to a wide variety of transportation careers. Through the program, WTS-KC works to make a difference in the lives of young girls by offering programs and activities that will spark their interest in all modes of transportation and encourage them to take courses in math, science, and technology, which are the stepping stones to exciting careers that can change the face of the transportation industry.

Events

We host quarterly events that introduce jobs that influence transportation. During the 2016 – 2017 school year, we visited the BNSF train simulator at Johnson County Community College and the KC Scout observation room at the MoDOT Kansas City District Office. This school year, the committee is excited to host new events for young women in the Kansas City metropolitan area.

We hope you'll join us for one of our upcoming events! If you're interested in attending or volunteering at any of these events, please contact Transportation YOU Chair, Amanda Bush

Our first WTS-KC Transportation YOU event in 2018, Fall in LOVE with Transportation, took place in February and we had a great turnout! Young girls participated in the career dating event where they learned more about the variety of fields in the transportation industry.  Thank you to our previous Transportation YOU event sponsors! Burns & McDonnell, CDM Smith, Coffman Associates, Garver, HDR, HNTB, Leigh & O'Kane, Terracon, TranSystems, and TREKK.
