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!

One of our own foreign service teens, Naomi Irion, was cruelly taken from our community this past month.  Naomi and her family served the United States in Moscow, Frankfurt, and Pretoria. 

In order to focus on the beauty of her life and the way she “embraced the adventure,” FSYF & Chambers Theory have created the Naomi Irion Memorial Scholarship in conjunction with the Capacity to Care award.  The Capacity to Care Award & Scholarship intends to award FS youth who have overcome adversity in the lifestyle and show a capacity to care.

The Capacity to Care & Naomi Irion Scholarship will be awarded for the first time in 2023.  Details will be announced early 2023 and Naomi’s family will be invited to give the award to the winning student at FSYF’s annual Youth Awards Ceremony. 

Please help honor Naomi’s life by donating to the scholarship fund.  FSYF would like to fund this scholarship in perpetuity.
