“INDEPENDENCE THROUGH EMPLOYMENT”
Vocational Rehabilitation for Native Americans will develop and deliver vocational support to eligible Native Americans /Alaskan Natives with disabilities living in the defined service area that are sensitive to their individual cultural beliefs, strengths, resources, priorities, concerns and abilities so each may engage in gainful employment.
If you are eligible to participate in VRNA, you may receive support in the following:
- Vocational counseling
- Vocational evaluation and/or career exploration
- Job seeking skills
- Job development
- Transition from high school to post-secondary education or immediate employment
- Physical or technical aids needed to accommodate a disability in the workplace
- Tools and equipment
- Other Federally approved services needed to find, keep or advance at a job.
Funding for VRNA is provided through a grant from the United States Department of Education. Our partners include: the sovereign nations of the Bad River, Lac Du Flambeau, Red Cliff, Sokaogon (Mole Lake) and St.Croix Bands of the Lake Superior Chippewa, Forest County Potawatomi, Ho-Chunk, Menominee and Stockbridge-Munsee Mohican; Lac Courte Oreilles and Oneida Tribal Vocational Rehabilitation projects; the State of Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development’s Division of Vocational Rehabilitation and numerous tribal, public and private education and social service agencies.
