Youth Engagement

The FEI intern and mentor model provides first-generation youth with valuable service leadership opportunities, allowing them to develop a deeper awareness of the community they serve, and the ability to grow and learn under the mentorship of experienced educators.

Students broaden their understanding of family engagement, social justice, and child development, and gain skills in communication and collaboration, critical thinking, growth mindset, cultural sensitivity and leadership.
