INDIANA’S SKILLFUL GOVERNOR’S COACHING CORPS – a partnership of Skillful and the state of Indiana – is an intensive program that recognizes the vital role career coaches play bridging the gap between individuals and employers, supporting economic growth across the state, and guiding professional advancement for thousands of Hoosiers.

The Skillful Governor’s Coaching Corps gives coaches the tools and training they need to better serve people in our rapidly changing labor market and to invest in their own personal and professional development. At the end of the program, the coaches recommend new practices and approaches to state policymakers for adoption.

We encourage applicants from workforce centers, community colleges, high schools, and nonprofit organizations from across the state.
