NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

The White House named New Orleans as one of 16 "Summer Impact Hubs," as part of the Obama administration's effort to help young Americans with job opportunities and training.

The designation as a hub means the federal government will help the city expand summer jobs and year-round employment opportunities. The communities will also receive added support to build learning and violence reduction programs, in addition to other support services.

In a news release, Mayor Mitch Landrieu said Monday's announcement will let the city "create more pathways to prosperity for our young men and women."
