Become an NFYI Member
If there’s not a local chapter in your area at this time, you’re invited to join our national membership program. Using virtual platforms and digital tools, this program enables current and former foster youth to connect with each other and share ideas no matter where they are in the country.
Your voice matters. Help us make a change.
Congressmembers Don Bacon (NE-02) and Dan Kildee (MI-05) have introduced The Fostering Postsecondary Success for Foster and Homeless Youth Act of 2021. If passed, the legislation would give transition age youth more help and resources to complete college, trade schools, and other postsecondary training programs. Reps. Bacon and Kildee are inviting other members of Congress to join them in co-sponsoring this bipartisan bill. You can help by emailing or calling your Congressmember and encouraging them to consider it!
Shadow Day has proven to be a truly enriching experience.
Shadow Day participants are outstanding examples of inner strength, and it is our strong belief that everyone’s worldview would be improved by spending time with foster youth. These individuals exemplify the American values of perseverance and resilience. For members of Congress, having these courageous foster youth joining us as our ‘shadows’ gives us a better perspective and serves as a reminder of the many issues they face.
