Native American Education Program, Title VII
Evergreen, Battle Ground and Vancouver Public School Districts
We provide free tutoring, cultural events & classes, connect students and families with local resources. We host annual events each year celebrating our students culture, and are creating ways to build up student leadership. We also have a strong Native American Parent Association Committee that meets monthly. Contact our offices to see if your family qualifies!
The Native American Education programs across the United States are in compliance with governmental treaties. The purpose is to address the educational and cultural needs of Native American and Alaska Native students as they strive to meet the challenging state performance standards.
A Path to Higher Education
Students enrolled in the Native American Education Program are eligible to receive one-to-one academic tutoring. As they improve academically they place a higher value on education. Clark College is working with the program to reinforce the importance of education and encourage the Native American students to continue their education at the higher college level.
A Connection to the Past
Students enrolled in the program have an opportunity to learn about their Native American History, music, dance, drumming, dance regalia, types of songs, story telling, singing, legends, crafts and learn pride in their culture. Many find that the program, as well as the annual Pow Wow (held in March), help bring the Native American community together.
