Brief Program Summary: JPMorgan is supporting the New Skills at Work Career Readiness Program in partnership with EmployIndy. EmployIndy will leverage momentum around the conversion of Indianapolis Public Schools (IPS) to career academies to lead a collaborative effort to build seamless transitions between high school and higher education. EmployIndy will work in collaboration with IPS, Ivy Tech Indianapolis, Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis, Ascend Indiana and the Governor’s Workforce Cabinet to create pathways to high wage jobs for high school students.
Success Metrics: Improve local and state pathways through standardizing high school CTE credits and shifting financial incentives for student enrollment in foundation courses to completion of advanced courses. Local and statewide policy to improve immersive work-based learning experiences, specifically youth apprenticeships, will be a priority. Medium term, programs of study will be scaled statewide; however, articulation agreements for dual credit courses will be established at the local level. Align regional courses for dual credit throughout the state will be a priority in order to create statewide pathways consistency. Long term, this initiative will be additive to local and state readiness and attainment goals to increase postsecondary skills and credentials of the workforce, scale apprenticeship, and ensure all high school students participating in high- quality career pathways graduate with postsecondary credentials.
