Nick Jasso, FLY’s Youth Voice Policy Coach, advocated for AB 2658 at the CA Assembly Public Safety Committee. FLY is proud to announce that the bill successfully moved foward! This will lead to much needed reform to address a variety of problems with electronic monitoring in the juvenile legal system.
FLY is in search of A Director of Talent! Do you know talent when you see it? FLY is looking for a collaborative, strategic and results-oriented leader to help lead and manage our FLY Community!
We’re so excited to announce that Ali Knight, FLY’s President and CEO, was recently accepted into the prestigious Annie E Casey Foundation’s Children and Family Fellowship! This esteemed program brings together 15 diverse, visionary leaders from around the country to lead and sustain major system reforms for youth and families.
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.”
