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.

Department Summary:

This position is housed in the Youth Voice Department and in Alameda County. We envision the inclusion of youth voice as both a value of organizational culture and a vehicle of change in FLY’s IMAGINE 2030 plan. Young people will lead the process to elevate their voices authentically in a way that shapes and shifts institutional practices and policies to influence the system that has impacted them to be more effective, humane, and just. All youth who engage in Alameda County Youth Voice Initiatives will have the political education, skill sets, agency, and adult support to lean into their power and elevate their voices in their communities. FLY’s current Alameda County Youth Voice Initiatives includes the Alameda County Youth Advisory Council and the Oakland Public Safety Youth Leadership Council.

Youth will provide input and recommendations on current system processes, policies and practices and will be a part of key decision making that will positively impact youth directly impacted by the system. Council members will not only commit to the values of kindness, respect, determination, honesty, growth, integrity, and leadership but to also prioritize and uplift the voices of youth who are currently incarcerated. Youth will be supported through personal and professional development with one-on-one coaching, group support, and community partnerships. 

 

Oakland Public Safety Youth Leadership Council (OPS-YLC) Overview:

The Oakland Public Safety Youth Leadership Council (YLC) invests in youth leadership to keep our community safe; youth engage the community and educate decision makers on root causes of violence, while elevating youth voices to influence and impact public safety systems, practices, and policies to transform our community. The Council will include a cohort of Oakland youth ages 14-21 for an 8 month council term. Youth who have been impacted by violence, the juvenile justice system, and homelessness will be prioritized to join the council. Council members will receive stipends for all of their work in which they will meet bi weekly for Council meetings and will engage in weekly activities as liaisons to various Oakland Public Safety Departments. To support the youth’s leadership, youth will receive both training and coaching throughout their term. Youths’ council work will be determined by priorities set by youth and will align with community needs and partnership opportunities.To achieve the Oakland Public Safety Youth Leadership Council mission in pursuit of the vision, the YLC will honor and uphold the values of stability, acceptance, joy, and community.
