FEA supports dynamic and diverse students to become Alaska's great educators!

Check out our FEA Overview video!

Welcome to the Future Educators of Alaska (FEA)program website! FEA is a statewide collaborative effort to inspire and support Alaska Native K-12 students to pursue careers in the field of education.

Fostering prospective Alaska Native teachers and administrators involves a partnership among teachers, communities, Alaska Native knowledge providers, school districts, University of Alaska campuses and more. Funded by grants from the U.S. Department of Education, Alaska Department of Education and Early Development, and the University of Alaska beginning in 2003, FEA has worked with 24 partner and affiliate school districts to establish over 50 FEA clubs across Alaska. The program name recently changed from Future Teachers of Alaska to Future Educators of Alaska to encompass the many careers in education.

Who does FEA benefit?

Students! FEA provides Alaska Native K-12 students the opportunity to explore careers in education and meet other students also interested in education.

Teachers! FEA offers teachers the opportunity to become advisors and share their joy of the profession by encouraging Native K-12 students to become educators.

Communities! FEA helps communities "grow their own educators" by nurturing prospective Alaska Native teachers at the local level.

Colleges! FEA supports career development for Alaska Native college students and acts as a bridge for high school students who plan to enter college.
