Advancing Tech in 46218

How are Eleven Fifty and Martin University Helping Advance Tech in 46218?

Thanks to the support of a grant from Lilly Endowment through its Enhancing Opportunity in Indianapolis initiative, we are working with many community partners to open the doorway to tech for residents of the Martindale-Brightwood neighborhood. We will be offering Part-Time Web Development and IT Professional courses on-site at Martin University for anyone who is 46218 resident.

Scott Jones and Dr. Dorothy Herron sit down Tina Cosby and Community Connection to talk about Advancing Tech in 46218 and why it is such an important initiative for the community! Check it out!

Attend an Information Session!

We are hosting several in-person information sessions at Martin University so you can learn more about this initiative! At these info sessions, we will:

  • answer your questions about the 46218 initiative and our programs
  • provide intro courses for our Web Development and IT Professional courses
  • have alumni speak about their experience at Eleven Fifty
  • provide free childcare and food
    • *see bottom of page for important childcare details*
