Greetings again! Long time, no see! The Comanche Nation Workforce Department is pleased to announce that the Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP) will be getting revamped and replaced with a new program service provided to all Comanche Nation Tribal Youth Members. A decision has been made to now change the summer only program, to a year-round program where we can start putting Comanche Nation tribal youth to work the entire year!! What's this mean, exactly? It means that we will not only host a summer program but we will host a year-round program as well AFTER the SYEP has ended for the summer. More youth related services will be offered too!!
The Comanche Nation Workforce Department has officially started its Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP), one of the six services that Workforce provides to tribal youth, ages 14 to 24 years of age, on June 7th, 2021!! The tribal youth attended their Youth Orientation and will begin their first day of work on June 8th, 2021.
An update for everyone! The Comanche Nation Workforce Department has returned back to its normal schedule of Monday thru Friday, 8:00am to 5:00pm. Workforce Staff felt that the department offered important services that were still needed on Fridays. Please come visit us at our new work schedule!
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!!
