Find great talent and support the Mayor’s SummerWorks Program!
People who have been successful in business and in life often look for meaningful ways to give back to the Louisville community that has supported their success.

We hope you will make a difference in a young person’s life – and help your company and community – by participating in the 2015 Mayor’s SummerWorks program.
