Indian Center, Inc. has administered an employment and training program funded by the US Department of Labor since 1980. The Native American Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act Program (WIOA) has grown into a statewide service delivery area that operates in 89 of 93 counties in Nebraska. The excluded counties of Thurston, Richardson, Burt, and Knox are under tribal jurisdictions.
The purpose of WIOA is to assist and prepare unemployed and underemployed Native Americans for the competitive job market, in consistence with the overall Indian Center mission to promote self-sufficiency. The WIA Section 166 program is to support employment and training activities for Indian, Alaskan Native, and Native Hawaiian individuals in order to: 1) develop more fully the academic, occupational, and literacy skills of such individuals; 2) make such individuals more competitive in the workforce; 3) promote the economic and social development of Indian, Alaskan Native, and Native Hawaiian communities in accordance with the goals and values of such communities. The WIA program aims at supporting comprehensive employment assistance, guidance, and culturally-appropriate support to Native Americans in the state of Nebraska.
Each client is given an initial assessment to effectively assist them with their employment and training goals. The career assessments utilized are CASAS (Comprehensive Adult Student Assessment Systems), and COPS (Career Occupational Preference System).
