The purpose of the Laguna Community Foundation Education (LCF) to Employment (E2E) Project is to research and define a set of practical workforce development recommendations that reflect the Pueblo of Laguna’s community needs, values, and POL Tribal Priorities to strengthen POL families, workers, employers, and economic infrastructure.
This two-year planning grant has allowed for us to better understand the POL Workforce by aligning the Pueblo's economic sustainability and prosperity with a focus on the People, or the Hanu. We recognize that Workforce Development occurs in many ways. However for the purpose of this project, we have drawn from research that focuses on the following areas:
LCF’s role has been to support a clear and sustainable strategy that not only identifies solutions to workforce needs, but also identifies the type of education and work preparedness training that will resonate in Laguna, including work behaviors and life-skill development. A major outcome will be to
create job mobility toward high opportunity occupations while also addressing inequities yet to be confirmed as a result of an engaged cross-sector partnership.
The "Take the Survey" button below is intended for Pueblo of Laguna Members only. Regardless of where you live (on or off the Pueblo of Laguna Reservation), we would like to ask for your assistance in completing this survey that will assist us in learning about what the POL Community envisions for future workforce development pathways. This project is funded by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation and will conclude in March 2022.
