INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – City park officials joined Mayor Joe Hogsett Wednesday morning to detail job opportunities set aside for young people.

In February, Hogsett launched Project Indy, an initiative to provide “experience, useful skills, and productive alternatives to crime and gangs.”

The mayor announced the city’s program would work to fill 2,000 jobs in 2017.

Four-hundred of the positions will be open through Indy Parks and Recreation.

Jobs posted through Project Indy are open to Marion County residents between 16 and 24 years old.
