The Alabama-Coushatta Indian Tribal Council Employment & Training Program is a Tribal Program that was formed in 1973. The program was designed by the Department of Labor’s Division of Indian and Native American Programs (DINAP) and is managed by the Alabama-Coushatta Tribe of Texas. The program is funded through Section 166 of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act. Our program provides employment and training services to Native Americans/American Indians, Native Hawaiians, and Native Alaskans that reside within the 121 county service area of the State of Texas. This website serves as a point of access to apply for our services.
It is the vision of the Alabama-Coushatta Indian Tribal Council Employment & Training Program to provide the framework whereby Native Americans/American Indians, Native Hawaiians, and Native Alaskans are able to increase their skill levels and are afforded employment and economic opportunities by fostering programs that create economic growth and prosperity. It is the goal for this program to strengthen the Native American/American Indians, Native Alaskans, and Native Hawaiians’ ability to improve their economic outlook yet retain their traditions.
Furthermore, it is the mission of the Alabama-Coushatta Indian Tribal Council Employment & Training Program to provide quality educational and employment opportunities to our Native American/American Indian, Native Hawaiian, and Native Alaskan clients in our service delivery area by reaching out into communities and joining forces with business leaders, workforce boards, service providers, and educational institutions to ensure participants are well prepared to meet the opportunities of employment such that they may take advantage of progressive career opportunities.
