“FLY is a program that everyone in the justice field, judges, lawyers, probation officers, and clients has confidence in, depends on, and trusts.” (John Dahl, Retired Probation Manager)
“FLY helps kids not slip off the end of the page. You catch that gleam in a kid’s eye, FLY gets a hold of that for the first time, it treats the youth as someone different, that they are special, and they run with it, they feel significant.” (Sean Rooney, Probation)
“FLY staff are committed, smart, talented and respected individuals who are focused on making our community better for youth. You don’t bring people down, you don’t look at the negative but at how you are going to solve it in the positive.” (Patricia Gardner, Silicon Valley Council of Nonprofits)
“This is the best program I’ve ever been too because it helps us understand instead of putting us down. It’s not punishment it’s learning. You get a second chance to understand what you did was wrong. “ ( FLY Youth)
“When some friends asked me to hang out I say no because I know they are going to do stuff that’s illegal.” (FLY Youth)
“Last week I watched my friend steal. After being in FLY, I told him what could happen, he went back into the store and put it back” (FLY Youth)
“At FLY I have learned that one person can make a difference in my life, so I can make a difference in someone’s to help the chain continue.” (FLY Youth)
“Having a mentor changed my life, now I ditched my bad influencing friends to hang out with my mentor.” (FLY Youth)
“The program has and continues to have a tremendous impact on my life. It has allowed me to get in touch with the views and feelings of youth in today’s society. I have gained insight into what type of problems they have and the tremendous pressures they are confronted with in trying to survive and adapt to such an environment. This experience has not only made me a more complete person, it will also allow me to be become a better and more understanding attorney.”—Volunteer
“FLY is a program that works and is worth investing in and expanding. The purpose of the juvenile justice system is accountability and rehabilitation. FLY helps provide both in a way that is accepted by our youth.” (Former Juvenile Court Judge Eugene M. Hyman)
