Louisville, Ky (WDRB) -- In the dead of winter, some young adults have a chance to find summer jobs. Employers at the Mayor's Youth Opportunity Showcase want to fill more than 1,200 positions.
The jobs for 16 to 21-year-olds range from life guards and swim instructors, to maintenance staff. Even the Louisville Health Department is looking for people ages 18 and up with a valid driver's license.
"I think this is a great opportunity for these young people to get out and get their names in the community and maybe get a job this summer," said Edward Galligan, Louisville Metro Department of Health and Wellness.
Many of the positions are summer jobs, but some start sooner than that.
Some of the employers include: Jefferson County Public Schools, Frisch's Big Boy Restaurants, Home Depot, Kentucky Science Center, Kroger, Lowe's, Margaret's Moving and Storage, Mark's Feed Store, Norton Healthcare, Thorntons, UPS and YMCA of Greater Louisville.
