Hundreds of young people will work this summer, thanks to the City of Shreveport's job program.The city says it has openings for more than 250 young folks in the summer employment program. Sixty-percent of the program's participants must meet low-income criteria or be considered at-risk. The remaining forty-percent can be from any income level, as long as they're between the ages of 16 and 21. Since federal stimulus dollars are no longer available to fund the program, Mayor Cedric Glover and the city council have budgeted $300-thousand of general fund money. They've also been seeking to partner with business leaders, elected officials, and non-profit groups to create even more job opportunities.
