We are thrilled to announce that Senator Bob Wieckowski has selected FLY as a 2021 Nonprofit of the Year! We are among many other amazing nonprofits across the state doing work for our communities, and it is a HUGE honor.
At FLY, we interrupt the pipeline to prison and support youth on their path to healthy, free, and productive lives.
Fresh Lifelines for Youth (FLY) is an award-winning nonprofit serving Bay Area youth impacted by the justice system. Our programs connect young people with positive mentors and role models, promote their understanding of the law and their rights, and support them to become leaders among their peers and in their communities. Together with our young people, we also help our justice systems become more just, humane, and equitable. As a result, FLY increases safety and decreases the costs and consequences of crime.
“FLY gave me the hope that I can be the person I want to be. And I’m taking steps to be that person every day.”
