Enhance both formal and informal educational opportunities available for neighborhood residents.

Key Strategies:

  • Develop partnerships to offer an ongoing series of educational programs to help residents develop the skills to become more self-sufficient (e.g. home ownership training, managing your personal finances to achieve short-term and long-term goals, advocating for your child’s education, career options/advancement, transit plan implications, accessing community resources, buying and financing a car, healthy eating/healthy living options, etc.).
  • Leverage church and community resources to help improve K-12 educational institutions in the neighborhood.
  • Partner with youth programs to provide after-school programming in school facilities or at the church.
  • Partner with programs that provide job-training certifications for positions that are easily accessible by walking or by bus (e.g. hospitality industry downtown or neighborhood businesses).
  • Continue working with Early Learning Indiana to offer early childhood education opportunities on the church campus.
  • Become an Enroll Indy site to enable parents to select the public school education option that best meets the needs of their children.
  • Partner with programs that help school dropouts achieve a GED.
  • Promote the importance of college readiness, and help individuals navigate the processes for applications and financial aid.
