Helping our Native students achieve academically and connecting them to their culture.
With support from The Native Project/Native Health and Spokane Falls Community College, we are able to provide the following programs for the Native community each year:
- Title VI Indian Education supports elementary, middle and high school students in the district to help them achieve academically and to connect them to their culture.
- After School Mentoring programs at Stevens and Willard elementaries support Native American students to succeed in academics and life. High school students work with elementary students two nights a week.
- Native American Graduation Program: a collaboration with area colleges and programs working with Native American students graduating from high school, college and GED programs each year.
- Making College the Norm: a monthly program for middle school students that helps them learn about higher education. Students visit local colleges to find out about their programs and how to become a college student.
- Indian Youth Summer Program is a five-week program each summer open to students in grades 1 through 8 that focuses on reading, math, culture and physical education. Students are taken on a field trip each week.
- Native Wellness is a collaboration with Native Project/Native Health, Title VI Indian Education and the Empire Health Foundation. It is offered Tuesday evenings, each school year at Spokane Public Montessori & Medicine Wheel Center, 1300 W. Knox, and is free and open to all.
