Make a Difference in Your Community!

FICS believes that youth from 5th grade on, service provider partners, parents, allies, business leaders and faith based groups should be involved in community conversations about what is "right" and "not right" in our communities.  Our model of building on strengths to address the risks works.  It works best when we all work together. 

Join us-we will be meeting on the Third Wednesday and Third Thursday of every month starting in September 2015!  Email alayneu@ficsinc.org for an application.
