"I don’t know where I would be without FLY, either locked up or dead to be honest."
FLY youth are either involved in the juvenile justice system or are at risk of it. But locking kids up is incredibly costly and proven to just make things worse for them and our communities. For less than one-tenth the cost of incarceration, FLY supports youth on the path to freedom and self-sufficiency.
In this scary time, we have quickly pivoted to serve our kids virtually so they can stay safe and continue to grow. That includes teaching our law classes online, connecting youth and their families to food and other basic needs, and creating special activities that our mentors and youth can do together remotely.
Please stand with our kids in this critical time. There's a 3:1 MATCH for your dollars!
Not only will Stand Together match every dollar you give today but FLY's Board of Directors have pledged an additional $50,000 above and beyond their normal giving to match your support. (If you prefer to give by check, please go to https://flyprogram.org/donate/ for our mailing address, and write GFM in the memo line. We will add your amount to this goal.)
Thank you for helping us continue moving toward our vision: a country where all kids grow up valued and supported, and the pipeline to prison is replaced with meaningful opportunities for kids to live healthy, free, and productive lives that make stronger, safer, and more vibrant communities for us all.
