Four Louisville-based entities are partnering to support a paid training program that will teach unemployed and underemployed members of the Louisville community high-demand IT skills.

The Louisville Skills program, which is being supported by the Louisville Urban League (Louisville, KY), Humana, the University of Louisville and Interapt, will teach 25 people skills needed to work in a high-tech, fast-paced environment.

“The Louisville Urban League is excited to partner on this venture that will provide life-altering career opportunities for members of our community,” said Sadiqa Reynolds, President and CEO of the Urban League, in a news release. “We believe this program will be a welcomed addition to the projects already underway in the West End and make an impact for generations.”

Humana’s Community Relations Program, which awards grants to Louisville area nonprofits, is funding the program. The Urban League will provide wraparound support services for the program’s participants. The Urban League will also be hosting sign-up opportunities at its West Broadway location on Tuesday, Aug. 6, from 5 to 7 p.m., as well as on Friday, Aug. 9, from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m.
