Work and Learn Indiana

The Institute for Workforce Excellence is hosting a free webinar for employers to explore the Institute’s Work and Learn Indiana (WLI) program. WLI has partnered with the Indiana Commission for Higher Education since 2013 to offer employers a reimbursement for work-based learning experiences via the Employment Aid Readiness Network (EARN) Indiana program – which recently expanded to include high school students. EARN Indiana is available to employers that offer high-quality work-based learning experiences and hire an eligible Indiana high school or college student. Employers can be reimbursed up to 50% of the student’s wages for a qualifying experience and can receive up to $30,000 per fiscal year. In this workshop, the Institute’s team will walk attendees through connecting to the WLI platform, posting internships, connecting with students and receiving EARN wage reimbursement. Register here for the webinar on March 28th from 11:30-12:30pm EDT.
