YOUR LIFE MATTERS (YLM)
OPPORTUNITY ZONE COORDINATOR
YLM Opportunity Zone (“OZ”) is a collaboration of organizations, service providers and schools who work with opportunity youth in a geographic Opportunity Zone in the 46218 zip code area in Indianapolis to build a culture of achievement. These youth move through an opportunity pipeline that provides comprehensive support through middle and high school, college or career. Financial support for this program comes from a three-year P3 grant awarded by the U.S. Department of Education to the City of Indianapolis.
The Opportunity Zone Coordinator will concentrate his/her efforts in two Indianapolis Housing Agency sites (Beechwood Gardens and Hawthorne Place) to oversee intensified services to resident youths and their families.
The Opportunity Zone is a program under Your Life Matters, a broad community-based initiative of Indiana Black Expo aimed at improving the life outcomes of African American males, ages 14 to 24 in Indianapolis.
The Opportunity Zone Coordinator reports to the Executive Director of Your Life Matters.
