BENEFITING: FERGUSON YOUTH INITIATIVE
The youth of Ferguson MO deserve better than a community in turmoil, poor schools and sparse opportunities. Please help give them rewarding activities, a secure environment, and a bright future.
The Ferguson Youth Initiative (FYI), a 501(c)(3) organization, offers kids safe, appropriate programming. Kids earn free bicycles or refurbished computers by taking classes in bike safety or computer use. The FYI Community Service Program offers the opportunity to perform mentor-guided service work.
FYI operates out of borrowed space in an old firehouse. Members raise money selling tee shirts and candles. The board and staff are all volunteers. With new funding, FYI could improve existing programming and offer new programs, hire a part-time clerical employee, and buy a van to transport kids to community service sites.
The Ferguson Youth Initiative is a 501(c)(3) corporation.
