Video coverage

Date Published: 1/23/2013

Mayor Greg Fischer today announced plans for putting at least 800 Louisville young adults, ages 16 – 21, to work this summer by expanding community support of the annual Mayor’s SummerWorks Program. Fischer also said the annual Youth Opportunity Showcase will be held Feb. 16 to connect youth to employers who have part-time and full-time jobs.

“Though the economy is slowly improving, teens and young adults still face a much higher unemployment rate than adults,” Fischer said. “These two programs are part of our laser-like focus on creating jobs and opportunities for youth. A summer job can be the turning point in a young person’s life – way beyond the paycheck they earn.”
