About Friends of Whitney Young


We are all Friends of Whitney Young

The moment your child accepts his/her offer from Whitney M. Young Magnet High School you become a member of a special community; Friends of Whitney Young (FoWY).  Your membership is free and automatic…what you do with this special opportunity is up to you.

Get to know your friends

Look for opportunities to join in community events sponsored by FoWY.  These events are a great way to meet people, get involved at Whitney Young and learn more about the community of “friends” you have just joined.

Support your friends and school

Financial support is an ongoing important facet of public education. For Whitney Young to continue to provide a top-notch education for our children, we rely on the financial support of all parents.  FoWY has several campaigns throughout the year to raise necessary funds for the school, and we invite all parents to participate.

Help lead your friends

Friends of Whitney Young board was established to support our children and to provide a mechanism for our community to come together to make a difference.  Getting involved in FoWY is an opportunity to invest  not only in your child’s education and experience at Whitney Young, but also to make a difference in the lives of every student that walks our halls.  Use FoWY as a way to get to know the interesting and engaging parents behind these champion students at Whitney Young.

You can and will make a difference.
