The Family Engagement Institute Makes A Difference

The Family Engagement Institute (FEI) was founded in 2010 with the goal of giving parents and caregivers the access, tools, and voice to support their children's education, while simultaneously supporting their own educational growth and development. That same year FEI began its partnership with Foothill College, whose leaders embraced FEI's Multi-Generational - Pathways to College For Two Generations model.

The mission statement of the Institute for Community and Civic Engagement (ICCE) is "to empower students to be agents of change in their communities and beyond." The actions that take those words into reality are some of the most exciting student stories to hear.
