Yesterday morning, Mayor Greg Fischer announced that McDonald’s has partnered with the SummerWorks program to hire up to 300 young people in Louisville this season.
SummerWorks youth may not have the work experience of seasoned industry pros, but their enthusiasm and talent makes them strong assets for employers.
This morning, Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer stopped by Kentucky Kingdom's Hurricane Bay water park to visit a group of SummerWorks participants.
On Saturday, over 175 job seekers age 16-21 and over 40 local employers attended SummerWorks' 2018 Employment Expo at the Louisville Central Community Center.
On Monday, Mayor Greg Fischer joined other community and business leaders, including JCPS Superintendent Marty Polio, at GE Appliances to announce the formal launch of the SummerWorks 2018 season.
As has been the case since the program's founding, SummerWorks helped facilitate a variety of work-based learning experiences for youth this season.
