Mission

The mission of the Felege Hiywot Center (FHC) is to guide urban, suburban and second-generation immigrant youth to transform their communities, their environment and themselves.

Overview

Through its agriculture-based STEAM program, FHC engages students from early grade school beyond high school and into careers in educational enrichment and servant leadership. FHC acknowledges that many of the students in the neighborhood are unfairly disadvantaged when it comes to educational opportunities. With that awareness in mind, FHC leverages its role as a longstanding non-profit to best help those students. Through summer programming focused on STEAM+, year-round mentorship, employment training, and community engagement, FHC opens up a world of new possibilities for these young students to elevate the neighborhood in which they live.
