Join FSYF6



Established in 1989, the Foreign Service Youth Foundation is the only nonprofit organization dedicated exclusively to the support of children of employees of the US foreign affairs agencies. Growing up in the Foreign Service can be challenging for our youth. Through publications, contests, workshops and regular family events, we help young people adapt to their changing environments, as they transition between posts worldwide. We help them embrace the adventure by encouraging resilience, fostering camaraderie, and celebrating achievements. To learn more about FSYF click here and view our NEW video here!
