The Florida Young Democrats of Indian River are the local chapter of the Florida Young Democrats (FYD). We are a political organization dedicated to securing the future of the Democratic Party in Indian River County along with the Democrats of Indian River.

We encourage young Democrats to serve as leaders in their communities, identifying and developing the next generation of Democratic voters and leaders, and ensuring the education and turnout for youth in local, state and national elections.
