INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - There's a major push to get summer jobs for teenagers.

Pathway Resource Center is getting help from the U.S. Department of Housing Development.

It'll help people between 18 and 24 find work.

There will be three My Brother's Keepers youth job fairs. City leaders hope giving teens something to do will improve their lives.

"It reduces crime, it enhances quality of life or residence and creates self esteem and pride," said City Councillor La Keisha Jackson. "Why else do you say this is important? It is important. We need to support our youth."

The first job fair will be on April 11 at Arsenal Tech. Additional events are set for April 25 and May 16.
