INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – An initiative seeking to help young people in urban areas across the country reach their full potential is making strides locally.
My Brother’s keeper announced Wednesday morning it is starting five new programs in Indianapolis. The programs will run alongside with Project Indy, an initiative launched by Mayor Hogsett to bring more than 1,000 summer jobs to teens.
“With five new my Brother’s Keeper programs starting up in our city, the mission of Project Indy is being fulfilled right here in some of our most underserved neighborhoods,” Hogsett said.
The pilot program will kick off Friday with a job fair for people ages 16 to 24 at the Applewood apartments on the far east side at noon.
