The Foreign Service Youth Foundation sponsors three social groups in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. These groups offer Foreign Service youth the opportunity to spend time with old friends and make new friends with peers who understand their unique lifestyle.
• Diplokids—For FS youth in elementary school
• Globetrotters—For FS youth in middle school
• Around the World in a Lifetime (AWAL)—For FS youth in high school
The social groups are led by FYSF program directors who have experience living overseas, often as FS spouses or TCKs (third-culture kids).
The program director plans and leads activities throughout the year such as:
• Family days out
• Historical Tours
• Trips for Middle Schoolers
• Teen trips
• Cooking Demos
The number and frequency of events varies according to demand. FSYF Program Directors welcome suggestions from FS families. Feel free to contact her directly with your thoughts and ideas about events and activities for FS youth or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
