Native Youth Employment Training Program
What: Serving job-seekers of Native American heritage, this ten week program is designed to support youth ages 15-24 who are experiencing challenges entering or succeeding in the workforce.
Why: Because you want to work and be good at it. That takes great soft skills. Your job satisfaction, retention and promotion are all directly related to soft skills.
Here’s why we think you’ll thrive:
You’ll be heard: Our program examines the unique issues experienced by Native Americans when they seek employment on or off the reservation;
You’ll be seen: A Native employee’s ability to keep his/her tribal culture and Indigenous identity intact throughout their working provides a strong foundation for success;
You’ll explore: the expectations of managers from within both Non-Indian and Native
Californian cultures in a safe space with fellow explorers;
You’ll connect: Meet Native community members and tribal professionals as you learn about resources specifically tailored to the needs of tribal youth;
You’ll be ready: For cultural differences encountered in a wide variety of employment settings. Through internships you will gain on-the-job experience, including preparing and launching CIMCC’s California Native gift store.
