Youth seeking to reenter the community after incarceration typically face a host of barriers to a successful transition. Reentry assistance is a critical service that’s been proven to help youth move forward in a positive direction and avoid going back into the system.
The goal of FLY’s Reentry Program is to assist all youth in achieving a seamless transition back into their community and serves youth in the Santa Clara and San Mateo counties. The program runs for about 10-11 months and focuses on:
Case Management: After youth are released, they receive intensive one-on-one support from a FLY case manager to help with their transition back into the community.
Pro-Social Activities: Youth are encouraged to participate in activities intended to promote social-emotional learning skills and resiliency through family, school, and community involvement.
Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Skills: These skills help youth to understand and manage their emotions, as well as set and achieve goals, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.
