At FLY, we interrupt the pipeline to prison and support youth on their path to healthy, free, and productive lives.

Founded in 2000, 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. We also work with youth to 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.

There is some kind of magic that happens. They find the people who can see these troubled and difficult kids as the jewels that they truly are, people who are so committed that their case management doesn’t end at 5 p.m. Working with these amazing people, FLY kids ignite! Our kids come out of FLY programs with their souls and their beauty restored.
~ Former Santa Clara County Chief Probation Officer, Sheila Mitchell
