Primary Target Areas

I CAN BE is a pilot program designed to raise employment levels and increase economic stability in the most impoverished neighborhoods in Louisville and prepare residents for available jobs with local employers. The most impoverished neighborhoods in the Louisville Metro area are within the 40203, 40210, 40211 and 40212 zip codes. In addition to high poverty rates, neighborhoods in these zip codes, have high crime rates, lower educational attainment levels, and higher unemployment and under employment than other areas in the community.

At the same time, there are hundreds of available jobs in the logistics industry locally and many more when you include other industries such as retail. For this reason, the Louisville Urban League has created this special workforce initiative targeting primarily these four zip codes to outreach, recruit, screen, and train a large number of residents for available jobs.
