Strategy

ADDING VALUE TO YOUNG PEOPLE and CARING ADULTS FOR 20 YEARS: FLON has a 20-year history of serving young people, who are at risk of engaging in youth risk behaviors, post-secondary planning education and parent and caring adult education that is developed to add value to one’s life purpose. Trained facilitators and subject matter experts teach age-appropriate evidenced based and supplemental curriculum’s in the school; community and faith-based settings. At the community-based level, young people and adults attend the community rallies and annual Pursuing MY Dreams EAGLE Leadership summit that is promoted as EduTainment (i.e., Educational and Performing Arts).

We build the capacity of young people to make healthy decisions, in order to secure their future to be self-sufficient adults.
