Locals are groups of youth in and from care who come together regularly to meet new people, do fun activities, develop their skills and unite their voices to make change.
Every Fed Local is youth-driven and is unique in order to meet the needs of its community. Local youth leaders are also supported by a host agency in the area and a Fed Program Manager who can help the group to establish a budget, create an annual plan and follow the Fed’s Code of Conduct.
