Brief Program Summary: The Indianapolis Urban League’s (IUL) Training Works Program
provides short-term training and supportive services needed to further develop employability and
job training skills in high-demand industry sectors. IUL Training Works also assists individuals
with successfully transitioning from assistance, incarceration, unemployment or
underemployment to self-sufficiency.

has successfully met and exceeded its performance goals. Program success is also determined
by the number of participant enrollments, number of participants completing a work readiness
program, number of participants completing a short-term training program, number of participants
earning a short-term industry recognized training credential, number of participants successfully
completing an externship, number of participants securing employment, and number of
participants retaining employment 30 and 60 days.
