Indy Achieves is Mayor Joe Hogsett’s response to Indianapolis’ rapidly changing labor market by ensuring that every Indianapolis resident has the ability to pursue and complete a postsecondary credential or degree program, and empowering residents to pursue careers that put them on a pathway to the middle class.

 

Indy Achieves will focus on two key ways to increase the proportion of adults with the appropriate credentials:

  1. Increasing the number of K-12 students who pursue and complete postsecondary credentials
  2. Increasing the educational attainment level of the existing adult population, all the while ensuring more intentional pathways into high-demand careers.

In today’s episode, Kara talks with Matt Impink, Caitlin Diehl, Scott Rafalski, Elizabeth Flood, and Jessica Solow - team members of both EmployIndy and Ivy Tech who are deeply engaged in work with Indy Achieves students. 

If you live in the Indianapolis area, consider how you can get involved with Indy Achieves. We discussed several opportunities for engagement today. You can visit www.indyachieves.org to learn more.
