The Freedom Education Project Puget Sound (FEPPS) offers a college program inside the Washington Correction Center for Women leading to an Associate of Arts and Science degree.

We foster a culture of learning and critical engagement, and we work to increase women's economic empowerment and family stability through access to higher education.

The videos above are interviews with women who have been our students. To learn more, explore the links below.
