Empowering Long Island's Youth

Empowering Long Island's Youth

Family Education Outreach Program (FEOP) partners with Suffolk County Community College and more

The Family Education Outreach Program (FEOP) recently partnered with Suffolk County Community College's Eastern Campus for College Day, welcoming students from Riverhead High School and the Mattituck-Cutchogue Junior High School. The event highlighted certificate programs, financial aid, and campus life, fostering discussions led by college staff and alumni. FEOP also separately held a parent-student information session covering graduation requirements, scholarships, and the SUNY Oneonta Migrant Leadership Academy.

FEOP’s Migrant Educators are currently providing instructional services in local school districts, offering in-school and after-school support to over 75 Riverhead students weekly, including expanded tutoring services and the "Story Time" Program for preschool-aged children across Long Island. These educators provide educational and advocacy services in libraries, homes, and virtual platforms, with a current enrollment of 396 migrant students. Field trips to destinations like the Long Island Riverhead Aquarium enrich students' experiences. FEOP's outreach extends to a weekly youth program at Roanoke House, offering instruction in English, English Language Arts (ELA), and math, alongside support with technology, school supplies, transportation, and meals.

The Long Island-Metro Migrant Education Program (MEP) facilitates Parent Advisory Council (PAC) meetings, promoting dialogue between migrant parents and administrators, and offering insights into resources and upcoming events. These initiatives aim to empower Long Island's youth, providing equitable access to educational opportunities and fostering a supportive environment for growth and development.

FEOP is Title I funded, serving at-risk children aged 2 to 22, including migrants, homeless, and impoverished students. The programs offer essential educational and advocacy services, focusing on early childhood education and academic support, free of charge to qualifying students and districts.
