Welcome

The Family Education Training Center of Hawaii (FETCH) is a comprehensive family education center that works with the whole family, including parents, children, grandparents, aunties, uncles—whomever you consider to be part of your family. FETCH helps parents lead effectively, and children belong with significance in the family, by contributing.

At FETCH, we believe people are happiest when they feel like valued members of a group. Our Sustainable Families Program provides guidance in family leadership and cooperation within the context of gardening, cooking, eating, and learning together about the history and culture of food around the world.  We also offer the Sustainable Sciences Youth Internship for 6th – 12th graders during the Fall and Spring semesters and a one-month, half day program during most summers.

FETCH is a University of Hawaii-based affiliate of the Family Education Centers of Hawaii, a nonprofit, 501 (c) (3), charitable organization. FETCH coordinates volunteer professionals and service-learning university students to provide services to families and youth here in Hawaii. FETCH is sponsored by the State Department of Health (Alcohol and Drug Abuse Division) as well as the United States Department of Agriculture (National Institute of Food and
Agriculture).
