UofL to participate in Mayor’s SummerWorks Program

Will do custodial and groundwork

imgresLOUISVILLE, Ky. (May 3, 2017) — The University of Louisville for the first time will participate in the Mayor’s SummerWorks Program to give up to 25 youth summer jobs on campus.

The program was started in 2011 by Mayor Greg Fischer to combat high unemployment rates among youth. The program helps students, ages 16 to 21, find jobs and includes workshops, practice interviews, resume reviews and resources.

Since its first year, the program has placed 11,600 local youth. The program spans seven weeks throughout the summer and students work in various capacities at various companies around the city.

Students will work on the Belknap and Health Science campuses, doing custodial and groundwork, including landscaping, Monday through Friday 7:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., from June 12 to July 28. Students are expected to not only gain valuable work skills, but also a better understanding of life on campus.
