“Now more than ever I am convinced I have brothers and sisters all over the United States standing up to improve a broken child welfare system.  I am honored to have so many of you a part of my world.” - One foster youth leader’s reflection in 2017

Families are who you love.  FYA challenges traditional definitions and boundaries  to help unite and connect a growing family of young leaders and youth-led organizations who share a common commitment to making the world better for those who come behind them.
