Diversity Fellowship grant

This project goal is to increase workforce development and service impact in the Native American population through a one-year diversity fellowship. To accomplish the goal, there are five objectives. 1) Recruit one fellow who is an enrolled member of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians (TMBCI) to participate in NDCPD’s diversity fellowship for one year; 2) Create a measurable Individual Cultural Competence Leadership Plan (ICCLP) for the identified Fellow. 3) Design and implement a workforce development capstone project; 4) Increase culturally competent service delivery of NDCPD’s grant projects to members of the TMBCI reservation; and 5) Sustain the project by identifying resources to support future Fellows at NDCPD past the project end date.
