NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The days of watching your kids struggle to find summer jobs may soon be over, and it's all thanks to a new Nashville program that will connect young people with thousands of jobs.

It's an online portal where students can fill out a resume and choose from over 10,000 jobs or internships, and all of the openings are paid.
Creators of the portal said there's something special on there for every age group.
