Family Extension & Education Program (FEEP)

The overall objective of the Family Extension and Education Program (FEEP) is to ensure community Tribal members access to knowledge, skill development, child rearing practices, child development, health, nutrition, and dietary information and career path and financial assistance in order to better manage their family life and resources. The program builds upon a collaborative relationship between SIPI, Tribal communities and their Head Start and Early Childhood Centers. All activities and projects are the result of focus groups, surveys and other input from Tribal communities. The use of distance education allows communities in remote areas to benefit from the same resources as SIPI students.

The Resource Center is an integral part of the FEEP program. The Center sponsors workshops on various topics of interest in the following areas:

  • Child development
  • Health
  • Financial education
  • Nutrition
  • Education

Community members are encouraged to borrow materials from the Resource Center.
