Summer Jobs for Youth
Helping kids build a future

Overview

To address the issue of lack of summer youth employment opportunities, the Foundation provided funding to organizations providing outcomes-based summer youth employment opportunities. These jobs not only provided an avenue for making money, but also on-the-job skills and training and the opportunity to keep them from engaging in criminal activity.

Outcomes

In 2014 and 2015, IPSF provided over $50,000 in funding to over 10 established community partners providing summer youth employment opportunities. The Foundation received Phase I funding from the CICF Community Crime Prevention Grant program for this project and supplemented with additional funds raised. In 2016, IPSF collaborated with EmployIndy to align efforts of the Graffiti Abatement Unit with summer youth employment by funding ex-offender laborers through RecycleForce.

Your support will help us meet the needs of Indy's police, fire and EMS.
