There are more than 2,700 summer jobs in Indianapolis



Indianapolis, Indiana – Right before the summer hiring season, the weather is making it feel somewhat like summer outside.

The Project Indy summer jobs project will return in 2023, according to an announcement made on Wednesday by Mayor Joe Hogsett, EmployIndy, and local partners. There are currently 2,700 opportunities open with 108 neighborhood employers.

Skateland, one of the places that benefit from the program, hosted the initiative’s launch. The program, according to its creators, gives companies like Skateland the chance to develop a talent pipeline for their sector of the economy and play a significant part in preparing the next generation of workers.

“The majority of our staff are teenagers, still in school. Hiring them is an important part of their growth and helps them as they enter the workforce,” said Rodney Williams, General Manager at Skateland. “We’re always looking to hire new young people who we can train and we feel Project Indy is going to benefit us a lot in that effort.”

Project Indy has assisted 15,000 young people in Marion County in obtaining job experience across a range of career sectors since its inception. Visit for additional information about the initiative.
