Indy Library Unveils TCU Foundation Job Center
September 20, 2012
Library officials joined representatives of the TCU Foundation and WorkOne to unveil the TCU Foundation Job Center at Central Library.
Individuals who are chronically unemployed or underemployed can receive personal assistance to enhance their employment skills at the TCU Foundation Job Center at The Indianapolis Public Library’s downtown Central Library, 40 E. St. Clair Street.
A $15,000 grant from the TCU Foundation in support of the Job Center was announced at ceremonies on September 20 at Central Library.
The TCU Foundation Job Center, located in the 12-seat Computer Training Lab at Central Library, is one of six Indy Library sites where technological training and specialized educational resources are provided at no cost to job seekers. The TCU Foundation Job Center at Central Library is open Mondays from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. and Fridays from 1 - 5 p.m.
Job Centers were launched at various Library locations in June 2011 in partnership with EmployIndy, the non-profit workforce investment board for Marion County, as well WorkOne, a local specialist in career counseling and programming. Visitors can receive one-on-one support from WorkOne specialists and Library computer assistants in using electronic resources to build a résumé, search for jobs, complete job applications, or to upgrade computer skills. In addition to Central Library, Job Center sites are at the College Avenue Branch (4180 N. College Ave.), Eagle Branch (3325 Lowry Road), East 38th Street Branch (5420 E. 38th St.), Southport Branch (2630 E. Stop 11 Road), and Warren Branch (9701 E. 21st St.).
Additional funding for the Job Centers was provided by The Glick Fund, a fund of the Central Indiana Community Foundation, and The Indianapolis Foundation Library Fund through grants to The Indianapolis Public Library Foundation. Those interested in contributing to the Job Center are encouraged to contact the Library Foundation at (317) 275-4700.
