About FLY- Fresh Lifelines for Youth

Location:

568 Valley Way, Milpitas, CA 95035, US

Mission Statement

FLY’s mission is to prevent juvenile crime and incarceration through legal education, mentoring, and leadership training. Working with juvenile justice youth and those 'at-risk’ of entering the system, FLY’s programs inspire and empower youth to alter the trajectory of their lives by helping them identify and build their strengths, become more responsible, and change delinquent behavior.

FLY’s vision is that our most marginalized and underserved youth will gain the life skills and character needed to avoid the criminal justice system and transform from delinquent youth into positive community leaders.

Description

The Fresh Lifelines for Youth ("FLY") Mentor Program links juvenile offenders with trained caring and committed adults who will work with the youths one-on-one to support their development of new behaviors, attitudes, and ambitions. Mentors will guide with ideas; show by their lifestyles; and support with consistency to help the youths increase their self-esteem, communication skills, and ability to set and achieve their highest goals.
