Participating schools are Indianapolis Public Schools, Phalen Leadership Academy, Pike High School, Metropolitan School District of Washington Township and Victory College Prep.

Students earn an average of $13 an hour working as junior coders, quality assurance techs, IT support techs, medical assistants, billing and coding specialists, staff accountants, maintenance technicians and project coordinators.

Students learn soft skills and technical skills. The first two years students will work during part of the school day. The third year, students work and complete requirements for credentials in their chosen industry.
