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). Learn more about how these unique collaborations are utilizing open gym basketball to invite these residents into a safe space to build trust and engage with services.
YES Indy providers include: CAFE, Edna Martin Christian Center, Fathers & Families, Hawthorne Community Center, Keys to Work, Martindale Brightwood CDC, Mary Rigg Neighborhood Center, and PACE Indy.
