The FIRE Summit started as an annual event ten years ago. It has grown into a partnership between South Puget Sound Community College and the four surrounding tribes: the Nisqually Tribe, the Squaxin Island Tribe, the Confederated Tribes of the Chehalis Reservation and the Skokomish Tribe.
The FIRE Summit is a daylong experience designed to ignite Native youth, giving them a place to start dreaming while exploring their future academic possibilities. Middle school and high school students get to create and build relationships with college staff and faculty and other Native students while learning about possible career pathways.
