Education, Employment, & Training


Empowering our community towards self-sufficiency: We work together to create clear paths for success through collaboration, outreach, and financial support.


Lifelong learning, limitless potential: We envision a community where everyone has the opportunity to learn and grow throughout their lives, fueled by accessible education and fulfilling careers.


The Santo Domingo Pueblo Employment & Training program equips adults and young adults with the skills and resources to achieve their employment goals. We offer a variety of services, including:

- Career guidance and planning: Identify your strengths and interests to find the right career path.
- Job search assistance: Get help with resume writing, interview preparation, and job placement.
- Skills training: Develop essential workplace skills to increase your competitiveness.
- Internship opportunities: Gain valuable hands-on experience through our programs like the Summer Enrichment Internship.

In addition to our employment and training programs, we co-sponsor the Kewa TRUTH Youth Council, affiliated with United National Indian Tribal Youth (UNITY), Inc. The Council offers personal and professional development opportunities, including attending UNITY's annual Midyear and National conferences. This is a great chance to connect with other Indigenous youth, participate in community projects, and explore your future!

Together, let's build a brighter future!
