Native American Chamber of Commerce
The Native American Chamber of Commerce created the Hope and Harmony for Humanity Program to assist in developing opportunities and continuing education workshops for Native American communities. The primary initiative of the Hope and Harmony for Humanity program is to partner with major corporations to sponsor Native Indian Achievement Centers (technology centers) on disadvantaged Native American reservations. The Achievement Centers’ focus is to improve access to digital information and technology on low-income remote Native American reservations. These technology centers are being sponsored to help to improve educational and employment opportunities, address imbalances in resources and skills and promote self-sufficiency. An Achievement Center provides free access to all ages. It can be a centerpiece for job skills development, a source for lifelong learning, a path to opportunity through education, and a vehicle for economic improvement. Equipment, curriculum and training are provided by corporate partners in conjunction with the Native American Chamber of Commerce. A week of staff training is included to assure familiarity with the curriculum being used to open the Achievement Center. Equipment includes 10 computers, an all-in-one printer, digital projector and other accessories required for networking and completing an up to date technology lab.
