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, outreach, workshops and regular family events, we help young people adapt to their changing environments, as they transition between posts worldwide. We strive to help Foreign Service Youth embrace the adventure by: encouraging resilience, fostering camaraderie, and celebrating achievements. 




Webinar November 19 @ 11:30am

Practicing Gratitude - A Key to Building Resilience 

Raising a family in the Foreign Service comes with both amazing opportunities and unique challenges. Join FSYF and Laura Banks for this webinar on gratitude and learn about the benefits of practicing gratitude and its connection to well-being and resilience. We will explore some science, stories, and simple practices which integrate gratitude into day-to-day moments and the fabric of our lives. Cultivating gratitude can help us savor the highs and navigate the lows of this career and lifestyle, becoming an enduring personal and family strength. An abiding sense of gratitude can re-frame difficult experiences from the past, resource us in the present moment, and open us up to future possibilities.

The webinar will be held on Wednesday, November 19 @ 11:30 am. Please make sure to register in order to receive the information to access the call.
