Welcome to the Young Forensic Scientists Forum (YFSF) Website!

The Young Forensic Scientists Forum (YFSF) is a group within the American Academy of Forensic Sciences (AAFS) that is dedicated to the education, enrichment and development of emerging forensic scientists and future leaders of the field.  Participants of YFSF come from all sections and membership levels of the AAFS.  YFSF provides an amazing opportunity for new forensic scientists to interact with and become part of the established forensic science community. This is accomplished through meetings and educational sessions at the annual AAFS conference, the YFSF newsletter, and this website.
