An American Indian Training, Placement, and Human Development Project. Center for Employment Training (CET) Final Report, February 1977.
Center for Employment Training, San Jose, CA.
Beginning July 1, 1975 the San Jose, California based Center for Employment Training (CET) was granted funds to assist communities with sizeable American Indian populations to develop training and placement programs modelled after itself. These funds enabled three community interest groups in Tucson (Arizona), Guadalupe (Arizona), and Bellingham (Washington) to develop their own fully operative CET Programs. The funds enabled key staff members of these programs to undergo extensive management training, and the programs to raise in-kind and direct equipment and material donations. These CET Programs trained and placed 34 men and women into full-time, permanent jobs--23 in Tucson, 8 in Guadalupe, and 3 in Bellingham. The Guadalupe CET Program also provided recruitment, counseling, placement, and alumni follow-up services. Since the beginning, contact was established with the Choctaw Indian Nation interested in developing a CET Program in Oklahoma. In keeping with the CET philosophy, the CET Programs were community organized and based, thus, reflecting and serving the needs of each unique community. The staffs had backgrounds similar to that of the students served. All the programs used the "Real World Approach" in their training. The San Jose CET Program provided technical assistance to each CET in the organization and training of their staffs, industrial job survey which identified demand skills, fund raising campaigns, proposal writing, statistics and record keeping, accounting, and budgeting.
