About Fresh Lifelines for Youth

Fresh Lifelines for Youth (FLY) is an award-winning nonprofit working to break the cycle of juvenile violence, crime, and incarceration. In twenty years of this work, FLY has supported tens of thousands of young people impacted by the justice system. FLY is at a critical juncture in our evolution: adding to a long history of success providing impactful intervention and prevention programs for young people, we understand that the pipeline-to-prison is a series of systems, structures and practices that suppress the ability of young people of color and other marginalized young people to thrive. We’ve set an audacious goal to do something about it: by 2030, through partnering with young people, communities, and systems, FLY will contribute to the fight for equity and justice by taking concrete steps to dismantle California’s pipeline to prison, equip 30,000 juvenile-justice and at-risk youth to transform their lives, and strengthen services for marginalized youth in California and beyond.

Program Summary:


Law Program: The Law Program is a 13-week legal education course serving over 225 youth annually with experiential components that inspires high school-aged youth to change their behavior, build social emotional learning (SEL) skills, and become change agents in their communities. The curriculum covers relevant topics such as police encounters, accomplice liability, three strikes, theft, vandalism, drugs, gangs, and police arrests. Classes are held in locked facilities, schools and the community.


Program Components:

Twelve week interactive CBT-based legal education curriculum, including weekly 90 minute to 2-hour sessions and key experiential and critical pedagogical components (e.g. role plays, mock debates, field trip, recognition ceremony) that provides:

·       Knowledge on legal and social consequences of juvenile crimes

·       Safety (physical/emotional) among adults and mixture of youth that allows for trying new behaviors and identities 

·       Community for youth that supports positive actions and choices

·       SEL skill development

·       Opportunities to develop self-agency so youth can become change agents in their communities

STAY FLY Program: The STAY FLY Program builds agency, self-sufficiency, and self-advocacy in transitional-age youth while decreasing their likelihood of deeper justice system involvement. STAY FLY serves over 5 youth in law-related education workshops and 15 youth in case management each year. 

Program Components:

·       Law-Related Education Workshops. Interactive legal education curriculum, including weekly two-hour sessions and key experiential components that provide:

o  Self-awareness: Participants will be able to recognize and take ownership of underlying emotions and identify constructive ways to react and integrate them into their lives.

o  Social awareness: Participants will develop the knowledge and capacities to display empathy and sensitivity and build relationships with individuals who are different from them.

o  Critical problem solving: Participants will be able to weigh and apply evidence when addressing problems and challenges in a thoughtful manner. 

o  Self-advocacy: Participants will be able to view themselves in the context of larger systems and take action on behalf of themselves, peers, and larger community.

·       Case Management & Coaching. One-on-one support to continue to build on the skills introduced in the law workshops as young adults receive coaching to practice the skills in the community, including designing and implementing goals in an individualized development plan.

·       System Collaboration. Participate in community meetings with system partners and collaborate with individual system players.

COVID-19 Vaccination

At FLY, we are committed to the safety of our employees, clients, and all others who enter our workplace.

If approved, employees will be subject to weekly COVID-19 testing and must wear masks/PPE at all times. 


Additionally, FLY will allow accommodations for unvaccinated employees to perform their essential job functions so long as it does not impose either a direct threat to the health and safety of the workplace and employees; or an undue hardship on the organization.


If either of the two conditions above are not met, and the employee cannot receive the vaccine, employment may be terminated.
