American Indian Services of the Fox Valley is a program that provides informational, educational, and cultural support to Native Americans and offers culturally-specific information and education to the Fox Valley Community in general.
In addition, the AIS-Team Leader serves as Indian Education Coordinator for the Appleton Area School District (AASD) through a contract with Goodwill NCW. This work includes conducting cultural programs for Native students, providing individual reading support for K-8 students, developing educational materials, serving as an advocate and resource person for parents/students/staff, promoting positive cross-cultural relationships, and working collaboratively with the Multi-cultural Support Specialist Team to provide academic and cultural support for high school students.
As a not-for-profit human services organization, Goodwill NCW uses the revenue from our stores to fund a wide variety of innovative programs and services that serve north central Wisconsin communities. In many cases, we collaborate with community partners, who also bring resources to the cause.
Some of these programs create jobs, offer training, and match assistive technology to those who need it. Others address financial, educational, developmental or diversity issues. All make our communities better places in which to live.
