The Western Washington Indian Employment and Training Program, commonly referred to by it's acronym -- WWIETP (Wee Tip) is a unique and progressive Native American Corporation located within Western Washington State. The overriding goal of the community it represents is to: Provide the broadest delivery of training and education services to its people in order to alleviate their inordinately high unemployment rate... This rate is now near 50%.

Its personality and cohesiveness is directly attributed to the wise delegates on its very active and productive Board of Directors. This "Board" represents the following tribes and Inter-Tribal Organizations located west of the Cascade Mountain Range; stretching north from the Canadian Border and south to the mighty Columbia River.
