NATIVE AMERICAN EMPLOYMENT AND TRAINING PROGRAM
The purpose of the Native American Employment and Training Program is to reduce unemployment among American Indians, traditionally the most economically disadvantaged and least serviced group in the United States. Toward this goal, the Council of Three Rivers American Indian Center has operated an employment and training program since 1976. The current program is funded through the United States Department of Labor.
