Support Our Mission

Friends of Island Academy is a community – and we would love for you to join us.  For starters, sign up for our mailing list by sending an email with contact information to

Next, please consider a one-time or recurring contribution.  Our core services of individualized, face to face counseling and advocacy is made possible almost exclusively through donations from private contributors – and it is the most important aspect of our effectiveness with youth.

Visit our donation page here.

If you can think of any other way you want to get involved, let us know.   Please see our contact information and feel free to reach out.  Here are a few ways you can make a difference:

  • Offer a job or internship to one of our Youth Members who have completed Friends’ work-readiness training
  • Volunteer at Friends or work for us pro bono (all specialties welcome!)
  • Mentor a young father
  • Make a donation
  • Join us for holiday celebrations, our men’s or women’s groups, or for special events.

Please contact us if you have any questions, comments or ideas.
