The Facilitating Life-skills for Youth (FLY) Program provides support and guidance for young adults aged 18-24 who are transitioning into adulthood. Participants work one-on-one with a coach to achieve a personalized plan for independence, with a focus on four main areas: career, education, financial management, and emotional wellness. In addition, participants are invited to meet with a mentor, attend holiday parties, celebrate milestones like graduation, and attend monthly workshops. FLY Program participants can use some or all of the services offered.
