Training is an important component of the support MFF provides for SNAP-Ed Partners across Michigan. Online training offers efficiencies of staff time and travel and provide 24/7 viewing options to offer flexibility in meeting the varied schedules of SNAP-Ed implementers. It also allows viewers to watch them multiple times, pausing for note-taking or practice.

A variety of trainings are offered in the online format. Review the categories below to view available trainings offered to support your SNAP-Ed programs.


Civil Rights

Civil Rights training is mandatory each fiscal year for all frontline staff and those who supervise frontline staff through the Michigan Fitness Foundation (MFF) SNAP-Ed funding. “Frontline staff” refers to anyone who interacts with SNAP-Ed participants.

To meet this requirement:

  1. Complete the read-along FY 2018 MFF SNAP-Ed Civil Rights Training, which is self-paced. Sites may choose to train as a group.
  2. After you have finished the training, return to this page to fill out and submit the required paperwork confirming your completion of this training. Nutrition educators and other SNAP-Ed implementers should submit this form to their local SNAP-Ed program lead. Local program leads should collect these documents from their staff and submit electronic copies to your MFF SNAP-Ed Project Manager. Original copies should be kept with your grant files.
