Goodwill Industries of Kentucky and KentuckianaWorks have partnered to establish a new resource for Louisville youths in the form of a young adult opportunity campus.
The campus, dubbed “The Spot” and located at 800 West Chestnut Street on the campus of Jefferson Community and Technical College, welcomes individuals ages 16-24 in need of career and educational assistance. The campus’ goal is to help young adults overcome barriers created by criminal backgrounds, abuse and more, and put them on a quality career path.
The Spot will house several programs that are offered by Goodwill Industries of Kentucky and KentuckianaWorks under one roof. It’s available for young adults in five additional counties outside of Jefferson: Bullitt, Henry, Oldham, Shelby, Spencer and Trimble.
On Monday, officials from Goodwill Industries of Kentucky and KentuckianaWorks – with help from Mayor Greg Fischer and Councilman Jecorey Arthur – officially cut the ribbon on the JCTC location and opened the doors of the campus.
