FLI is exceptional youth development organization. But it's not like any other. They go above and beyond. While small, they are top-notch at what they do programmatically, and do not cut corners. They are extremeley successful at building a solid base of positive and productive young citizens committed to and capable of creating a better world. The youth they serve typically come from lower-resourced communities, and they are each given the support, mentorship and structured guidance to create a real-world project doing something they dream of doing in a way that creates a tangible, lasting difference in the world. I know of no other organization that does this so successfully. To learn more, please visit: www.thefli.org. There's also a short, informative video about FLI here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cBvZmVT2Ufw

What is unique about this organization?

They "build bold humanitarian leaders" through real hands-on projects from start to finish. Each student leaves a powerful legacy that is meaningful to them. They dream it up, meet mentors, create the project, learn how to manage the budget, marketing, organizing... everything. It's quite astonishing!

Review from Guidestar

This organization leads to inspiring outcomes, and needs to become part of our youth development landscape in more than just the 10-15 schools in which it exists! I have seen the impact again and again, and I'm impressed with how much they have accomplished during these tough economic times. Bravo!

Being a FLI mentor is a rewarding experience! Both of "my" teens were able to publish their own written work and the sales of their sales have benefitted important causes: 1) helping women on welfare to secure jobs, and 2) helping to build an India school
