Pathways To Success

The area offices of the social services division use a single intake, assessment and development of an individual employability plan. Each adult or youth served must meet the requirement of being an enrolled citizen of the Chickasaw Nation or a member of another federally recognized tribe.

The goals are to:

  • Increase the employability of Native American people within the Chickasaw Nation's service area
  • Provide special services to enable Native American families to become productive in the workforce

The main components of these services are youth leadership services, educational/vocational classroom training services, occupational/employment services and general assistance, and other supportive services.

This program invests case management, counseling and life skills training to increase clients’ ability to reach their potential while decreasing dependence on financial assistance. Required applications are available at any area office.

  • Tribal citizenship card
  • Social Security card
  • Proof of residency
