Date Published: 7/17/2013

Mayor Greg Fischer says Louisville's business community has made the Mayor's SummerWorks Program a success for the third year by putting 1,500 young adults, ages 16-21, to work in summer jobs.

"The impact of a summer job on a young person goes way beyond a paycheck, because it can set the tone and the course for a lifetime," Fischer said in a news release. "When federal dollars for youth jobs ended, we stepped up and -- with the support of local businesses -- we are creating these critical job experiences for young people."
