LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A program putting teens to work in Louisville is seeing massive growth.

Dozens of them found jobs here at Kentucky Kingdom.

Mayor Greg Fischer's SummerWorks program started five years ago with only 100 teens taking part.

This summer it's put more than 3,000 kids to work.

The partnership between metro government and local companies offers jobs at places like the Louisville Zoo, the YMCA and Kentucky Kingdom.
