Job Ready Indy will soon be available for all residents.

EmployIndy President and CEO Angela Carr Klitzsch said the job skills curriculum is expanding.

“As of February 15, we will be migrating this curriculum to an online platform so that individuals even outside Marion County and individuals who are older than 16 to 24 years old can take advantage of this program as well,” Carr Klitzsch said.

The curriculum was developed in collaboration with Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett's office, EmployIndy, the Indy Chamber, and various employers and community organizations.

“By increasing the number of residents equipped with fundamental skills to enter the workforce, we’re boosting the talent pool for employers and growing our local economy,” Hogsett said.

Participants can earn badges, learn new skills, and enhance their overall career competency through the courses.

More than 3,000 people have participated since it launched in 2018.
