Work and Learn Indiana
Work and Learn Indiana links employers, learners, high schools, colleges and universities. It is a dynamic, searchable database, matching and reporting system that also provides resources and guidance on work-based learning opportunities. The goal is to help create or expand high-quality experiential opportunities within Indiana.
Originally formed as Indiana INTERNnet in 2001, this program of the Institute for Workforce Excellence, a 501(c)3 subsidiary of the Indiana Chamber of Commerce, was the solution to a series of Indiana Chamber-led studies that demonstrated the state’s “brain drain” issue. The Greater Indianapolis Chamber of Commerce initiated and operated the program in partnership with the University of Indianapolis. With continued funding from the Lilly Endowment, the organization was granted 501(c)3 tax exempt status in May 2004 and moved to the Indiana Chamber, the state’s largest business advocacy organization, where it rebranded to Work and Learn Indiana in 2021.
