Thank You for Supporting Young People 

This Thanksgiving, we are thanking everyone for helping FYI Support Young People.  Your donations, volunteer efforts, support at the Ferguson Farmer's Market, purchase of Remnant Candles and/or "I Support Young People" shirts has been terrific.


Your support has already made a positive impact on the young people in our community.  We look forward to your continued support in future endeavors. To see what is in the works, click here or wish to provide a donation, click here.  Thank You.

Grand Opening of the new Street Dreamz
Recording Studio and Party Center 

On Sunday, November 18th, Street Dreamz Artist Development Center reopened its doors as Street Dreams Recording Studio and Party Center. 


Owners, Lala and Koran Bolden, are doing big things and this center is just one of their 'babies'.  Check them out today, wish them congrats and keep supporting young entrepreneurs.   Street Dreamz is located at the St. Louis Mills Mall.

Ferguson- Florissant School District Guardian Angels 
The FFSD has many families & children that struggle with poverty. These students have the same needs as all other children in the district. Often FFSD can fill that need through existing resources and agencies. 


When a student has a need that falls through the gaps, FFSD has Guardian Angels.  Here more about the FFSD Guardian Angels and see how you might be able to help. 
The next Spot 394 is Saturday, February 23rd from 7-10pm

Building from the fun, excitement, and success of the last Spot 394, FYI will host the next teen event on February 23rd at the Emerson Family YMCA. Tickets will be avaiable soon at your local school and youth organization.  In the mean time, save the date, tell your friends, and figure out what you will wear ...
