Forward Learning Youth & Young Adults (FLYY) is a youth and family-serving nonprofit organization based in Madison, Wisconsin.
FLYY responds to issues faced by teens and families through its distinctive educational program design. FLYY is best known for providing value-forming wilderness expeditions, parent skill development and support groups, and community-based aftercare (individual and family counseling, dispute resolution and communication skill building, and mentoring services.) FLYY provides youth and families with positive, asset-building experiences, and meaningful, supportive relationships to develop resilience, capacity, and coping skills in the face of various risk factors.
By combining these elements, FLYY serves to prevent youth and young adults from becoming chronic offenders, substance abusers, truants and/or dropouts. Many young people served by FLYY are marginalized, overlooked, and not effectively reached by or able to access existing community resources.
