Americorps Logo

WOTFV AmeriCorps Program is now accepting member applications for the 2018-2019 service year! Members will serve for a full calendar year, from 9/1/2018-8/15/2019.
Members will educate, create, implement, and promote activities and programs regarding physical activity and healthy eating to Fox Valley youth and adults. While creating a culture and environment that supports health, members will receive professional development, hands-on experience towards internal goals, and make a difference in the Fox Valley community. Members will serve in either a full-time capacity of 1730 hours (average 34.5 hours/week) or half-time capacity of 930 hours (average 18.5 hours/week). Members will receive a living allowance during their year of service and an education award to pay off student loans or tuition costs after successful completion! Click here for more information.

WOTFV Next Generation

WOTFV is embarking on a process to determine how we can collectively foster a vision for creating a healthier Fox Valley; where the culture and environment make it easy to lead a healthy lifestyle and more of our residents live longer, more vibrant, and healthier lives. You may have heard the recent media coverage about new data which reveals that 75% of Fox Valley adults and 29% of youth have a body mass index that classifies them as overweight or obese. This health issue continues to be an urgent priority for our community!
 
WOTFV, through its amazing partnerships, has demonstrated success towards creating a healthier community; however, the current pace and intensity leave us challenged to bring about significant change in a timeframe that can turn the curve now. This proposed explorative process represents an evolution of these efforts; to scale up this work in order to create bigger, bolder, more sustainable change. Watch our newsletter for important updates!
