Wisconsin-based non-profit organization that specializes in working with at-risk and vulnerable teens (14 to 18 years old) and young adults (18 to 30 years old.) FLYY’s unique program design couples three major elements: a wilderness expedition, parent/guardian support, and ongoing community-based aftercare. FLYY works collaboratively with youth and family-serving agencies and organizations that focus on mental health, delinquency prevention, substance abuse, truancy/dropouts. Many young people served by FLYY are marginalized, overlooked, and not effectively reached by, or able to access existing community resources. Impact FLYY aims to impact youth and families in 3 ways: •The development of young people with regard to pro-social behaviors and self-efficacy/self-esteem. •Capacity building of parents/guardians elated to healthy communication, expectations, and role modeling. •Strengthening family systems that are under duress and improve their ability to navigate difficulties.
