Fresh Lifelines for Youth (FLY) is an award-winning nonprofit serving Bay Area youth involved in the juvenile justice system and those at risk. We educate them about the law and their rights, give them positive mentors and role models, and support them to become leaders among their peers and in their communities. Together with our young people, we also help our juvenile 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.”
