Message From The CT/RI Indian Council
I know that this pandemic has been a strain on everyone but as the old saying goes; “In every dark cloud, there is a silver lining”.
During this time of being at home, it is a good time to have your tribal members who are about to graduate high school to enroll in our workforce program. It is also a good time for you to further your skills if you are a part-time worker, since most of the training is done online now.
We have a lot of training opportunities for online service and of course, if the participant completes the Work Readiness (WR) program they will be eligible for up to $400 check upon completion.
Please contact our Career Counselors Brooke Waldron and Brenda Geer at: (860) 535-1277 Extension 314 for Brooke and 316 For Brenda. Visit our website: https://www.rhodeislandindiancouncil.org/connecticutoffice for more information.
As the Executive Director, I would also like to take this time to have a zoom meeting/video conference with you to discuss some unique training opportunities available for your tribe. I will contact you soon to schedule this meeting.
***To all STN tribal members who are unemployed or underemployed and are looking for work, the Connecticut Indian Council (CIC) would like to meet with you! The CIC is searching for enrolled STN tribal members in need of training or employment. You must be an enrolled STN member, at least 18 years of age, unemployed or underemployed and males must register for Selective Service. If you meet the minimum requirements, please contact the CIC @ 1 (860)535-1277.
