Fostering Our Youth Inc. (FOY) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was forged out of a deep calling to inspire and mentor upcoming generations. We are a group of volunteers who are dedicated to helping and supporting youth around the world. We have overcome demanding obstacles and we want to pass on our experiences and lesson learned. In 2016, our founder, Ms. Phi Tran realized the benefits of positive role models because of her secondary school experiences (read her background in the Community Outreach tab). After three years of collaborating with those who shared their stories of personal challenges, experiences, and achievements, FOY became a reality. Together we can spark young women and men to strive for excellence in all they do. Making live changes in local and global communities is the way forward for FOY.

Why We Exist:

FOY exists so that all youth can have exposure to positive influences and opportunities regardless of their background and circumstances. Through our youth, we will passionately build a better future.

FOY has three main goals:

  1. Perform youth community outreach events through a mutual common ground approach.
  2. Mentorship through our website that will facilitate connecting youth to a FOY Star.
  3. Award scholarships to high school seniors currently pursuing college or vocational school.
