FFI Discovery Youth Program (Nationwide)

10 young people from 6 states are currently participating in our pilot virtual program!

As a celebration of FFI's 35th year, we are excited to offer this one-of-kind program designed to develop bold and empathetic leaders (15-18 years old) from across the nation.

This program will focus on conflict transformation (personal and community), public speaking, communication, and identity.

It is one of the most challenging youth leadership programs in the country that emphasizes resilience, empathy, and action. Participants develop concrete skills and confidence that will help you unify the nation and transform the world into a better place.
