Dear Friend,

The Native American Jump Start to Employment Program is a link between the employer and Native American high school graduates who want a summer job. The summer jobs can certainly turn into life long careers.

Unemployment on some Reservations in South Dakota is 85%, so these good kids do not have a chance for employment at a job on the reservation.

This NAJSEP program is only for summer jobs and is not an “assimilation” program. NAJSEP is not connected to any religious group/faith or governmental program.
