WorkOne to provide service opportunities

INDIANAPOLIS — Hoosiers will soon be able to take advantage of community and national volunteering initiatives while participating in free training, education and job-seeking programs and services currently offered at WorkOne locations throughout the state.

This comes as Serve Indiana (formerly known as The Indiana Office of Faith Based and Community Initiatives) merges with the Indiana Department of Workforce Development.

Volunteering and AmeriCorps national service opportunities include mentoring and tutoring youth, building affordable housing, creating and repairing trails in state parks, and teaching literacy, job readiness, and nutrition. Some volunteers receive a living allowance, as well as educational scholarship assistance.

The Serve Indiana/DWD merger will also enable Hoosiers to access additional housing and mortgage assistance programs at WorkOne. Those resources were previously offered through the OFBCI, but will now be a part of the WorkOne service umbrella.

The local WorkOne Express office is located at 1 Ivy Tech Way, Suite B. The phone number is 574-722-6652.
