The Incarcerated

Fresh Lifelines for Youth (FLY)

"Fresh Lifelines for Youth helps teens in trouble learn to make healthy decisions. The organization provides at-risk and disadvantaged youth with vital information regarding the decisions they make in their lives. We provide well-trained mentors who listen. And FLY gives its graduates the opportunity to advance to a leadership program where they use their knowledge and skills to give back to their communities. One of FLY's programs, a year-long one, has a striking 85% success rate. All at one tenth the cost of incarceration." (from FLY website)
