ORGANIZATION: Family & Youth Initiative

  • 14 people are interested

Family & Youth Initiative welcomes eligible candidates to help serve on our Fundraising Committee. We are seeking no more than two volunteers who are 21 or older with an interest in helping our team with fundraising efforts, broadly defined to include individual, corporate, and foundation giving/funding.

Volunteers would commit to serve for a 2-year Committee term.

Some prior fundraising experience is preferred, but not required.

Most important, we are seeking energetic volunteers who are willing to help us maximize the potential of our current fundraising avenues, while also exploring new opportunities to help grow the organization. The Committee "meets" by conference call at a mutually convenient date and time every 30 days for no longer than an hour to plan and strategize.

Our board committees provide volunteers and DCFYI a great opportunity to get to know each other, while also serving as our primary vehicle for recruitment on to DCFYI’s governance body, our Board of Directors.

Please reach out if you are interested or have questions.

Thank you!

About Family & Youth Initiative


853 New Jersey Avenue,SE, Suite 200, Washington, DC 20003, US

Mission Statement

Family & Youth Initiative (DCFYI) creates enriching lifetime relationships for youth at risk of aging out of foster care. We make a difference in the lives of older children by forging pathways to adoption while building bridges between youth and a community of adults willing to open their hearts and homes.


Family & Youth Initiative (DCFYI) helps older children (12 to 21) in foster care find adoptive families and make lifelong connections with caring

DCFYI focuses solely on helping teens at riskof aging out of fostercare find adoptive families and develop lasting relationships with other caring adults. We are unique in that we offer opportunities for adults who are not yet approved to adopt or mentor to meet and get to know teens so that relationships can grow naturally, which is a much more effective way for adults and teens to get to know each other and get comfortable before any formal mentor or adoption match is made.

We are one of very few organizations that create low barrier ways for adults to get to know and help teens in foster care. We encourage creative responses to the needs of individual teens and abilities and availability of interested adults.
