Overview

Brief Program Summary: Originally known as Youth Employment Services, YES Indy has empowered over 6,000 low-income, out-of-school Marion County residents since 2003 through barrier-busting support (such as vouchers for child care, legal assistance, housing, or transportation), career services, and connection to education, training, and job opportunities. Acting as a guide and intermediary, EmployIndy utilizes its network of local community organizations as the purveyors of YES Indy services. We further support these partners by providing technical assistance, evidence-based best practices, and professional development opportunities through our workforce Ecosystem Enrichment programming. EmployIndy further supports YES Indy by establishing partners to help with outreach and promotion via multiple YES Indy Re-engagement Centers (RECs). YES Indy providers include: Community Alliance of the Far Eastside (CAFE), Edna Martin Christian Center, Fathers & Families, Flanner House, Hawthorne Community Center, Keys to Work, Martindale Brightwood CDC, Mary Rigg Neighborhood Center, YMCA, and PACE Indy.
Success Metrics: Each of the YES Indy providers track the enrollment, job readiness, HSE completion, work experiences, training or certification placement and completion, postsecondary placement and completion, and job placement.
