FLY serves youth ages 11 to 24 who are currently, formerly, or at risk of juvenile justice system involvement. FLY’s core programs – legal education, leadership training, and mentoring – are based on ideas from youth who were facing years or life in prison:
Teach kids about the law and consequences of crime so they can learn to make better choices
Give them a chance to do something good for their communities so they aren’t seen as just “juvenile delinquents”
Give them positive adult role models who will be there for them and can help them change their lives
These ideas remain the foundation of FLY and have been strengthened with best practices in youth development and crime prevention.
