Ascend Indiana Business Development Coordinator
 
 
 
Ascend Indiana, launched out of the Central Indiana Corporate Partnership (CICP), exists to create stronger alignment between the supply of skilled talent and demand from employers in Central Indiana. Our vision is for every Indiana citizen to have the opportunity to pursue a meaningful career path and for every Indiana employer to have access to the skilled workforce necessary to thrive. By 2020 at least 62 percent of Indiana jobs will require a post-secondary educated worker, yet, only 42 percent of working adults in Central Indiana have an associate’s degree, bachelor’s degree, or above. This leaves over 200,000 residents without the necessary skills to obtain jobs of the future. This leads to stagnating economic growth and prosperity for individuals and our region. Ascend Indiana aims to address these issues by creating opportunities for people to pursue self-sustaining career paths with a focus on serving individuals from low-income backgrounds. Ascend Indiana is seeking a motivated, self-starter to support the management and execution of Ascend’s employer engagement systems and processes. The implementation of these systems will help connect diverse, low-income, post-secondary students to self-sustaining and meaningful careers with Central Indiana employers. In addition, the VISTA member will support Ascend's fundraising and development efforts. VISTA members will work with a highly collaborative team throughout their term of service and will receive continuous professional development opportunities. Please e-mail resumes to Caitlin Sheesley-Brown at caitlin.brown@ascendindiana.com.
