These fun events are for "peers" to connect with each other. These fun events are held virtually for youth with lived experience in the child welfare system in Florida and alumni from foster care. You do not need to be a current FYS member to attend but you have to be a youth or young adult who has experienced the child welfare system (FYS Alumni welcome as well). These events are lead by youth/young adults and FOR youth/young adults. Come for fun, prizes and connection :)
