EGTI partnership helps people with disabilities

We are so excited to be partnering with the Erskine Green Training Institute (EGTI)! We have had the privilege of hosting several students as front desk volunteers (pictured above). They are doing such an AMAZING job and we are grateful to have them around!

EGTI has partnered with the Downtown YMCA & Horizon Convention Center (HCC) to train students in the Front Desk Agent program. During the following month, you will see EGTI students in your environments receiving job training. Students will be with a YMCA or HCC employee or EGTI staff until they have reached independence.

Erskine Green Training Institute, developed by The Arc of Indiana Foundation, was established in 2016 to provide opportunities for postsecondary vocational training for people with disabilities that empower and lead to meaningful employment.

EGTI provides vocational training for a variety of jobs in the hotel, food service, and healthcare support environments. It, along with its attached 150-room Courtyard Muncie at Horizon Convention Center hotel, is an immersive learning environment.
