The Florida Governor’s Council on Indian Affairs and the Department of Labor share a vision of providing quality employment and training services to Native American communities that not only meet regulatory requirements but also are administered in ways that are consistent with the traditional cultural values and beliefs of the people they are designed to serve.
To help them succeed, we work with each individual to bring out their personal aptitudes, interests and goals and help them find services available to them. The goal is to blend the individual’s aspirations, attitude and abilities with an occupation that is practical and viable.
The Council works to help Native American, Alaskan Native and Native Hawaiian veterans become economically self-sufficient through occupational skills training, on-the-job training, job readiness training, adult education and literacy.
The Council serves as a liaison to Native American veterans in making sure they have the education, training, job resources and services they need to compete in today’s labor market.
If you are an under-skilled, underemployed or unemployed Native American veteran, call us at 800-322-9186.
