Project FLY (Future Leaders in Youth), is a workshop-deliverance based organization that aims to empower at-risk youth to take advantage of opportunities in post-secondary education, employment, and entrepreneurship. Through interactive workshops, Project FLY educates youth on core topics which include the importance of post-secondary education, employment skills, environmental sustainability, leadership, financial literacy, professional soft skills, and entrepreneurship. We also run a yearly bilingual Pitch competition for high school students called Perfect Pitch and work with the school boards and organizations to build programs which fill gaps in their current curriculum in the areas such as nutrition, financial planning, mental health, and equity.

This year, Project FLY’s objectives include:

  1. Building new partnerships with high schools who rank academically lower and organizations who work with youth in the justice system, face difficulty with housing and shelter, and deal with food insecurity.

  2. Continuing to build on our relationships with current community partners by developing programs.

  3. Strengthening the current academic content by working with industry professionals and educators.

  4. Creating opportunities for youth through a Project FLY volunteer, employment, and entrepreneurship program.

  5. Providing new opportunities and creating content which will benefit youth through our social media platforms and engaging partners through our website by offering them opportunities to grow and present updates on Project FLY’s goals.
