The FLY CAFA Mentor Program is a 12 month program for youth who are currently being impacted by the juvenile justice system and need additional support from an adult in their communities to help achieve their goals.
For nearly two decades, FLY has trained and matched adult volunteer mentors with youth on formal probation and DEJ. Court Appointed Friend and Advocates, or CAFA Mentors, meet regularly with the youth to support them in identifying and pursuing their life goals. Each mentor/mentee match has a FLY case manager for support and also attends monthly group activities organized by FLY. Mentors are sworn in to act as advocates for their mentees in the courtroom.
