Project Indy, a youth summer jobs program based in Indiana has just launched a new web and mobile portal in a bid to employ more than 2,000 people.
The job portal now allows participants ages 16-24 to search and apply for open jobs based on their location.
“From day camp counsellors to lifeguards, we are ready to not only help teens apply for summer jobs, but also to offer them good-paying, dependable jobs,” said Linda Broadfoot, Director of Indy Parks in a statement on their website.
“Our lifeguards start at $10 per hour with other positions paying up to $15 per hour. We know teens need work, and Indy Parks is here to help them find it,” she said.
Project Indy was launched by Employ Indy and Mayor Joe Hogsett in May 2016 and quickly expanded after receiving a $2 million grant from the US Department of Labor and their Career Pathways for Youth: Summer Jobs and Beyond program.
