Native American Heritage Month: A Letter from Our CEO

Native American Heritage Month

We at Forward Service Corporation are proud to support and celebrate Native American Heritage Month this November.

Over the years, we have had fruitful partnerships with Native American communities across the state of Wisconsin. We have had the honor of working closely with Lac du Flambeau, Potawatomi, Ho-Chunk, Oneida, Menominee, and Sokaogon Chippewa communities, and we continue to seek opportunities to strengthen our connection to Wisconsin tribes. Each relationship deepens our appreciation of the unique talents and virtues of every individual and nation.

Tribal members have realized success through the Wisconsin Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), FoodShare Employment Training (FSET) program, and Wisconsin Works (W-2). Through our Jobs for America’s Graduates (JAG-WI), we have had the privilege of working with the youth of the Ho-Chunk community, assisting in career planning, and laying out the path for their future. Similarly, our Upward Bound programs have the honor of helping Native American scholars in Menominee Indian High School and Shawano High School prepare for college.

Recently, Native American graduates of our Transportation Alliance for New Solutions (TrANS) program gathered at Lambeau Field in Green Bay for Construction Inclusion Week. Alumni include individuals from the Oneida Nation, Menominee Nation, and Stockbridge-Munsee Community. Twenty graduates came together to celebrate their success in the construction and transportation industry and provide mentorship opportunities for future graduates.

Our mission is to help people achieve their dreams. Only through our partnerships do we realize that mission.

Join us in celebrating Native American Heritage Month.

Together we can make this world a better place.
