FYA partners are youth-led advocacy groups from all over the United States. These partners are securely funded, stable, community-based organizations who recognize their own potential and are committed to increasing their effectiveness as advocates.

FYA program partners will:

  • Embrace the values of true youth engagement and leadership
  • Have current and former foster youth recently out of care as committed members of their advocacy group
  • Have adequate local adult support
  • Have appropriate administrative and financial support
  • Demonstrate that they can support and sustain these advocacy programs long term

Benefits of Being an FYA Program Partner

  • Excellent trainers who all share a history in foster care
  • A leadership/advocacy coach for support
  • Access to online learning and resources
  • Opportunity for foster youth in program partners around the United States to meet and learn from each other at the FYA annual Leaders for Change national conference
  • Participation in a national evaluation project on positive youth development and well being
