About the FLY Fellows Program

The FLY Fellows program is a 9-month mentoring program where young graduates implement a social project in their local communities. Focus is on initiatives that advance the education of children and youth and improve the wellbeing of families.

How it works

Mentoring is a time proven strategy that can help young people achieve their potential. The fellowship connects qualifying youth to a mentor, like-minded peers and access to schools or centers where fellows implement their own community-based initiatives.

To qualify, applicants submit their plan to implement a project that enables them (with the help of VeryLoudYouth mentors) to solve a problem in their locality.
