Louisville Preparing for Youth Opportunity Showcase

Two weeks from today, Louisville Metro Government will host its fifth annual Youth Opportunity Showcase.The event brings employers to the convention center downtown and invites teens and young adults to meet with the employees to apply for summer jobs. Mayor Jerry Abramson says it’s an important choice for young people.“The choice is either hanging out for the summer, doing nothing, generating no extra revenue, providing no opportunity for themselves, or getting up in the morning, going to work, putting some money in their purses or wallets, and giving them a chance to understand the workplace situation," says Abramson.Home Depot, UPS, Churchill Downs and Kentucky Kingdom will be among the employers hiring at the event.It’s set for February 13th.
