The Fauquier Alliance for Youth (FAY) was created to carry on the work of Fauquier’s Promise, with the hope to expand upon its achievements. FAY supports collaboration and communication between child and youth serving organizations and between those organizations and the public to facilitate the development of services where needed. Organizations, businesses and individuals that are interested in helping this initiative grow are welcome to become involved. FAY meets once every quarter.

The Harlem Childrens Zone for Fauquier County.
The Alliance is currently researching the nationally-recognized Harlem Childrens Zone (HCZ) to determine if some of the components would work for Fauquier County. The goal of HCZ is to create a "tipping point" in the neighborhood so that children are surrounded by an enriching environment of college-oriented peers and supportive adults, a counterweight to "the street" and a toxic popular culture that glorifies misogyny and anti-social behavior. The two fundamental principles of the HCZ are to help kids in a sustained way, starting as early in their lives as possible, and to create a critical mass of adults around them who understand what it takes to help children succeed.
FAY's Strategic Plan for Fauquier County Youth!
Fauquier County, while supportive of children and youth serving organizations, does not have a “go-to” place for those organizations to coordinate their efforts and maximize their effectiveness. The Alliance for Youth plans to support a coherent vision for families, children and youth in our community that is data driven. To view a copy of the Strategic Plan, please click here.
