With so much continued positive feedback from the SYEP Surveys, Workforce finally decided to seek approval for the relaunch and initiation of the Summer Youth Employment Program. Workforce can now officially say: the request was approved by our Tribal Administration - we will have a SYEP 2021!!!!! My staff and I are very excited because this is almost everyone's first SYEP experience within the department. We will work our hardest to make it happen and to make it happen succesfully!
So far, the Comanche Nation Workforce Department has been receiving a lot of positive results, feedeback, and comments from the SYEP Survey that is currently posted on the Comanche Nation Website and Workforce page. Due to these positive results, the Summer Youth Employment Program may be initiated this summer! Workforce still has to meet with Tribal Administration on a green light to proceed but this is a great start, nonetheless. As always, please remember to check our Workforce Facebook page for all the latest news and updates about the Workforce Department, plus PIO social media sources. We will try our hardest to spread the word soon enough!!
Attention all High School Juniors and Seniors!! Is attending college an educational pursuit of yours after you graduate from high school? Look no further! The Comanche Nation Workforce Department is giving assistance to all high school Juniors and Seniors with their American College Testing (ACT). We plan on assisting the first 50 tribal youth applicants who apply with our department, a chance to receive a testing voucher for their ACT Exam & ACT Written Exam combined. The applications will become available Monday, March 22nd, 2021 and available for pickup at the Dorothy Sunrise Lorentino Education Center (1608 SW 9th St., Lawton, OK 73505).
So far, with the launch of our event and partnership with Great Plains Technology Center (GPTC), we have had only three (3) applicants apply for the Long-Term Care Certified Nurse Aide (LTCNA) and Basic Life Support (BLS) CPR training courses. We plan on assistancing at least nine (9) applicants, so we are six (6) applicants away from our goal! Please remember to check the Workforce Facebook page for the update, revised LTCNA Flyer for more information. WIOA will assist in all payments associated with tutition, books/supplies, scrubs, and lunch, so the only thing needed from the applicant, is committment to this opportunity.
