Indy Library Receives Gift from TCU Foundation for Job Training
July 17, 2013
Individuals who are chronically unemployed or underemployed will receive personal assistance to enhance their employment skills at Central Library downtown as a result of a $15,000 grant from the TCU Foundation to The Indianapolis Public Library Foundation.
The grant continues a service begun in 2011 at the TCU Foundation Job Center @ Central Library, where 6,089 individuals have received free one-on-one support in using electronic resources to build a résumé, search for jobs, complete job applications, or upgrade computer skills. The TCU Foundation Job Center @ Central Library, as well as Job Centers at seven other Indy Library locations, is provided in partnership with EmployIndy, the non-profit workforce investment board for Marion County, and WorkOne, a local specialist in career counseling and programming.
In addition to Central Library, Job Center sites are at the Brightwood Branch (2435 N. Sherman Drive), College Avenue Branch (4180 N. College Ave.), Eagle Branch (3325 Lowry Road), East 38th Street Branch (5420 E. 38th St.), Pike Branch (6525 Zionsville Road), Southport Branch (2630 E. Stop 11 Road), and Warren Branch (9701 E. 21st St.).
Additional funding for the Job Centers is provided by 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.
