Fresh Youth Initiatives invites you to participate in “JOURNEYS,” a collection of stories about immigration and migration, past and present, as told by people from many different cultures and countries. People like YOU!

“JOURNEYS highlights rich and colorful anecdotes – fabled relatives and modern day heroes, sadness, joy, the unexpected, and above all, hope."

Purchase a page in "JOURNEYS," a unique opportunity to share your story, or honor or memorialize a loved one. Corporate sponsors are invited to support an FYI student or staff member as they share their story.

  • Does your family heritage go back to a family member who arrived from Eastern Europe?
  • Do you have a favorite relative who emigrated from Latin America?
  • Did you or a family member experience migration?
  • What was the experience like?

Purchase a page and present your story in our collection. Or, donate to support an FYI student or staff member.
