The theme for the past year at FLY has been “Together We Stand Tall.” It comes from the amazing experience we give our youth when we visit a grove of tall redwood trees during our three-day leadership retreats. For most of the kids, this is their first experience in nature. The most important lesson we teach them is that despite their past troubles and mistakes, they are all like those trees: beautiful, strong, resilient, adaptable, and helpful.
And because of your support, FLY youth have the chance to stand tall as they find a new path away from the pipeline to prison, to a place where they can grow and thrive. Thank you for believing in them and believing in FLY.
