Research shows that a decreased presence in the school puts students at a high risk of failing academically, experiencing psychosocial difficulties, entering the juvenile justice system and falling victim to drug and alcohol abuse.
The F.L.Y., or Forever Loving Yourself, weekly school-based and after school program identifies young ladies who are experiencing a rough transition into adulthood and offers them a positive support system to avoid the pitfalls that can disrupt their lives. Our curriculum focuses on reducing violence by laying a foundation of social-emotional development, implementation of life skills and community outreach. Our goal is to increase in-school presence and, ultimately, enhance our girl's overall quality of life.
We create an environment where participants can share their experiences, learn from one another and encourage each other. Each participant commits to learning the value of responsibility and giving back to their community and at the end of the year, we take the time to celebrate their achievements with a graduation event. We actively include families in our program and assist them in becoming more involved because we understand that it truly takes a village to keep a child on the road to success.
