About

A F.L.O.W. (Fluent Love of Words) volunteer is a skilled poet, writer, hip hop artist or other performance artist who assists the New Earth F.L.O.W. Instructors by providing a performance for our students in a detention facility or group home and/or by contributing their assistance and expertise to the environment.

In addition to working to working with youth involved in the juvenile justice system, New Earth provides comprehensive high school diploma programing in partnership with YouthBuild USA and John Muir Charter School of CA. We are able to host 100 young people aged 17-25, focusing on those who are reentering society from incarceration, currently reside in a group home or are in foster care, and generally those who are in need of a high school diploma, vocational development, and other wrap around services.
