Louisville Urban League offering jobs through new training program aimed at women and minorities

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- If you'll commit to 10 weeks of training, the Louisville Urban League will guarantee you a job.

"We have so many opportunities in our community right now," said Sadiqa Reynolds, President and CEO of the Louisville Urban League. "We are trying to create a certification program thanks to a partnership with the mayor's office, Kentuckianaworks, the state government."

The Louisville Urban League launched Kentuckiana Builds on Monday morning. The program is open to anyone, but it's aimed at helping women and minorities find construction jobs.

About a dozen people showed up for orientation Monday, but there's room for hundreds more.

"We need people just to come in here and be willing to work, you know, whatever you don't have ... we can work with you on getting it," Reynolds said. "That's what we need. We need people who are willing to learn, willing to work and are going to be committed."

Classes start on Dec. 5. To find out how to sign up for Kentuckiana Builds, click here.
