The Friends of Young Achievers (FOYA) is a non-profit created in 1999 to assist Young Achievers by fundraising and building bridges to partner organizations, consulting on school finance, and communicating with the public.

FOYA’s design reflects our belief that to deliver academic excellence to urban students, a school needs additional monies to supplement the per pupil allocation from the city and a commitment to continually seek resources. (FOYA Board of Directors)

FOYA was established to address the need of filling the funding gap that exists between public money available to schools and the actual costs of funding a quality education – particularly one in which students participate in school activities eight hours or more per day.

We believe to truly provide the opportunities students need to succeed we must continually seek funds to support key programming and we supplement the Boston Public School funds for the school with these funds.
