The KentuckianaWorks Foundation promotes and assists the activities of KentuckianaWorks, Greater Louisville's Workforce Development Board. The Foundation's goal is to raise funds and coordinate efforts that encourage residents in the seven-county KentuckianaWorks region to raise their educational attainment levels.
The Foundation raises money for three area educational and career support organizations – the KentuckianaWorks College Access Center (KCAC), the Kentucky Youth Career Center in Jefferson County and the Mayor's SummerWorks program.
KentuckianaWorks College Access Center
The KentuckianaWorks College Access Center (KCAC) is a One-Stop Center focusing on college access. It provides financial aid, educational and career counseling to adults and youth in the Louisville region and in Southern Indiana. Free KCAC services include assistance in completing financial aid forms and career assessments, help in selecting a postsecondary institution, counseling to rehabilitate defaulted student loans, Internet use for college information and scholarship searches, and computer use to prepare for the ACT and SAT. The vast majority of KCAC customers are low-income, first-generation college entrants.
Kentucky Youth Career Center
The Kentucky Youth Career Center in Jefferson County offers a fresh beginning to high school drop-outs between the ages of 16 and 24. The Youth Career Center has positively affected the lives of hundreds of youth by giving them a chance to earn a GED, improve their academic skills, find a job and enter postsecondary education.
The Mayor's SummerWorks Program
The Mayor's SummerWorks Program is making a difference in Louisville -- one youth at a time. By providing quality summer job opportunities to Louisville-area young adults, ages 16-21, the Mayor's SummerWorks Program is helping decrease the near-record teen unemployment rate and is helping young adults throughout Louisville learn first-hand about the world of work.
